Frontonasal dysplasia

Frontonasal dysplasia is a rare anomaly with distinct nasal deformities. Its basic characteristics include hypertelorism, bifid nasal tip, or complete midline splitting of the nose. Other features can include median cleft palate and anterior encephalocele. Inheritance is usually distributive. [Alex M. Greenberg; Joachim Prein, "Craniomaxillofacial Reconstructive & Corrective Bone Surgery"]
