A case of median cleft of the nose followed for a long period of time

A case of median cleft of the nose followed for a long period of time Median cleft of the nose was first reported in 1989 by Trendelenburg as Doggennase. This is a very rare disease, and only approximately 30 cases of this condition have been reported in Japan ( 2 ). Tessier’s classification is often used to classify facial clefts ( 4 ). Median cleft of the nose corresponds to a No. 0 cleft according to this classification. No. 0 cleft of Tessier’s classification has two subtypes: frontonasal dysplasia sequence and holoprosencephaly sequence. The case to be reported was of the former type. The patient was followed for 15 years after birth; only soft tissue surgery was performed. The patient is now satisfied with her external appearance. She will be followed carefully and subsequent treatment will be provided. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

Median cleft of the nose was first reported in 1989 by Trendelenburg as Doggennase. This is a very rare disease, and only approximately 30 cases of this condition have been reported in Japan ( 2 ). Tessier’s classification is often used to classify facial clefts ( 4 ). Median cleft of the nose corresponds to a No. 0 cleft according to this classification. No. 0 cleft of Tessier’s classification has two subtypes: frontonasal dysplasia sequence and holoprosencephaly sequence. The case to be reported was of the former type. The patient was followed for 15 years after birth; only soft tissue surgery was performed. The patient is now satisfied with her external appearance. She will be followed carefully and subsequent treatment will be provided.
