Blepharophimosis Nasal Groove Growth Retardation
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Blepharophimosis – Nasal Groove – Growth Retardation is a rare condition mainly characterized by problems with the eyes (eyeball and eyelid position) and nose (nose bridge), slowed growth, and an abnormal crease on the nose. Individuals with this condition also have drooping eyelids and misaligned eyeballs, as well as a flattened nose bridge. Hence, individuals may have problems with vision and breathing. The condition is also often diagnosed during childhood. Doctors diagnose this condition based on physical examinations. Treatment is based on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. Eye and nose specialists may suggest individuals undergo surgery to fix problems to help with seeing and breathing.
