  • Jacobsen Syndrome

    Clinical features included growth and mental retardation, hypotonia, trigonocephaly, facial dysmorphism with hypertelorism, epicanthal folds, abnormally shaped palpebral fissures[] nasal bridge, short nose, v-shaped mouth, small ears, low set posteriorly rotated ears).[] Facial dysmorphism was also common and included hypertelorism, epicanthal folds, and down-slanting palpebral fissures.[]

  • Hypertrichotic Osteochondrodysplasia

    Some features are suggestive of a storage disorder, including macrocephaly and coarse facial features, with a broad nasal bridge, epicanthal folds, wide mouth, and full lips[] Clinical description Dysmorphic features include macrocephaly and a coarse facial appearance with thick eyebrows, prominent supraorbital ridges, broad nasal bridge, anteverted[] In addition, macrocephaly and coarse facial features, including a broad nasal bridge, epicanthal folds, a wide mouth, and full lips, can be suggestive of a storage disorder[]

    Physical findings included gum hypertrophy, digitalization of the thumbs, hypoplasia of the distal phalanges and nails, epicanthal folds, pseudohypertelorism, epidermoid cyst[] Phenytoin is associated with fetal hydantoin syndrome, typified by changes in the finger tips, hypoplasia of nails, a broad nasal bridge, a wide distance between the eyes,[] […] over the inside corner of the eye (called an epicanthal fold).[]

  • Baraitser-Winter Syndrome 1

    Clinical Characteristics Ocular Features: Ptosis (both unilateral and bilateral), hypertelorism, prominent epicanthal folds, and colobomata are common.[] Her facial anomalies included high arched eyebrows, hypertelorism, downslanted palpebral fissures, a broad nasal bridge, a broad nasal tip and columella, anteverted nostrils[] Other clinical features included: strabism, epicanthic folds, broad nasal bridge, and brain anomalies such as lissencephaly, bilateral hygroma and cerebral atrophy.[]

  • Neuhauser Syndrome

    They also had hypotonia, incomplete cleft palate, bifid uvula, depressed nasal bridge, epicanthal folds, hypoplastic labia major, micrognathia and pectus excavatum.[] nasal bridge, epicanthus), who also had additional findings such as Peters' anomaly, microcephaly, undescended testicle, patent ductus arteriosus and atrial septal defects[] folds, broad nasal root, frontal bossing and antimongoloid lid slanting.[]
