A 1 month old female admitted at the Pediatrics department due to severe pneumonia was referred for further evaluation and management of a facial anomaly. She was noted to have closely-set eyes with a flattened nose and a single nostril.

OBJECTIVE: To present a case of cebocephaly.


STUDY SETTING: Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center

STUDY POPULATION: one-month old female

Cebocephaly or ocular hypotelorism is characterized by a small, flattened nose with a single nostril situated below incomplete or underdeveloped closely-set eyes. Treatment is symptomatic and supportive. The goals of surgery are limited to improving function and appearance.

The true spectrum of cebocephaly including its associated malformations, clinical manifestations and underlying etiologies require further elucidation. Applying this knowledge to individuals and their families is of utmost importance.
