Achondroplasia Gallery Facies (1 of 6)

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I see (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) a low nasal bridge and a small distal cartilaginous nose (pug nose). The head (calvarium) may be disproportionally large (macrocephaly). The open mouth may be indicative of oral breathing.

The five icons also depict similar signs. All six instances have the same clinical diagnosis.

PERSPECTIVE: Please, see the companion video – Diagnosis Process.
