Growth charts for nose length, nasal protrusion, and philtrum length from birth to 97 years


Zankl, Andreas; Eberle, Lukas; Molinari, Luciano; Schinzel, Albert (2002). Growth charts for nose length, nasal protrusion, and philtrum length from birth to 97 years. American Journal of Medical Genetics, 111(4):388-391.

Abstract

Craniofacial measurements are an integral part in the evaluation of a dysmorphic patient. Since the clinical impression can be misleading, dysmorphic features should be validated by quantitative criteria wherever possible. Anthropometric measurements have been used in the characterization of many dysmorphic syndromes. However, data on normal craniofacial measurements is sparse and incomplete. In this study, we present normal values for nose size and philtrum length based on measurements on 2,500 healthy individuals of central European origin, ranging in age from zero to 97 years.
