FFDD types II and III present with a variable facial dysmorphism including distichiasis (upper lashes) or lacking eyelashes and upward slanting and thinned lateral eyebrows with a flattened nasal bridge and full upper lip. FFDD types I and IV are infrequently associated with extra-cutaneous anomalies.
