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.
