Nasal Bridge, Prominent


Nasal Bridge, Prominent

Subjective: Anterior positioning of the nasal root in comparison to the usual positioning for age


A prominent nasal bridge can occur irrespective of the width of the nasal bridge, and the width should be assessed separately. The nasal bridge becomes more prominent with age. Although the nasal root may be anteriorly placed without increasing the space between the eyes, prominence of the nasal bridge may be accompanied by Telecanthus or ocular Hypertelorism [Hall et al., [2009]]. If such findings are present these should be coded separately. Deep-set eyes [Hall et al., [2009]] may lead to the impression of a prominent nasal bridge, but this finding should be coded separately.
