Many diagnoses are possible by just looking at the patient's face. Some examples are given below— 1. Myxedematous or Torpid Facies—Patient have expressionless face & apathetic look.Face is puffy with periorbital swelling, boggy eyelids and loss of outer 1/3 rd of the eyebrows. Xanthelasmas may be present. Skin is cool & dry. There may be malar flush. 2. Thyrotoxic face or Graves’ disease— Patient appears anxious, restless and fidgety. Unilateral or bilateral proptosis. Thyroid gland may be diffusely enlarged. 3. Cretinism—Congenital Hypothyroidism. Mental retardation results in idiotic look on face. Coarse skin with thick lips, large ears. 4. Cushingoid face— Rounded, plethoric face giving rise to moon face appearance. There may be hirsutism and acne. 5. Acromegalic face— Coarse facial features with prominent supraorbital ridges. Increased wrinkling of the forehead. Jaw is protruded forward (Prognathism). Nose, lips and ears are large. 6. Dermatomyositis - Heliotrope rash which is a purplish color or lilac rash, but may also be red. It can occur around the eyes along with swelling but also occurs on the upper chest or back what is called the "shawl" (around the neck) or "V-sign" above the breasts and may also occur on the face, upper arms, thighs, or hands. 7. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus - Photosensitive rash over both cheeks and bridge of the nose, popularly known as ‘Butterfly Rash’. 8.

Lips are thin, pursed with puckered skin around mouth. Mouth orifice is small (microstomia). 9. Thalassemic Facies - Expanded globular maxillae, due to bone marrow hyperexpansion into facial bones, combined with prominent epicanthal folds & frontal bossing.

Long, lean, triangular (Hatchet facies), sad and expressionless face with wasting of temporalis and masseter. 12. Myasthenic facies - Snarling facies’ in Myasthenia gravis is due to ptosis (usually bilateral) & drooping of corners of the mouth, and weakness of the facial muscles. There is usually frontalis overactivity to compensate for ptosis. 13.

Watch more Newborn & Baby Development videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/506167-How-to-Understand-Down-Syndrome-Baby-Development Down syndrome is also known as trisomy 21. It's a genetic defect in the baby. Parents always want to know what is the prognosis of Down syndrome, and every Down syndrome baby has a different course. There are some common features to Down syndrome. The babies usually have wonderful personalities, and they're very warm as children. Down syndrome babies have typical facial features. They can have epicanthal folds over their eyes. They can have a large tongue. They often have a simian crease along their hands. They can have an extra wide space between their toes. Some Down syndrome babies have clinodactyly, which is a curvature of the fifth digit on each finger, and sometimes on the toes as well. Not all Down syndrome babies have the same findings. More importantly than the physical features are the heart defects. Many Down syndrome babies have congenital heart defects. The most common one is a VSD, ventricular septal defect. And another one that is very common in Down syndrome is an endocardio cushion defect. It is imperative, if you have a baby with Down syndrome, that you have a cardiology visit once a year. Babies with Down syndrome are also at increased risk for leukemias. Your pediatrician will be very well-versed in taking care of a Down syndrome baby and making sure that your baby is kept up to date as far as screenings for leukemia, heart defects, and other problems including low tone and physical therapy that the baby might need throughout their life.

https://word2speech.com/medical/ Epicanthal fold Epicanthal fold: A fold of skin that comes down across the inner angle of the eye. Epicanthal folds appear most frequently in persons with Down syndrome and some other constellations of birth defects. To the untrained eye, an epicanthal fold may look similar to the eye fold found in peoples of Asian origin, but the normal Asian eye fold is actually quite distinct, whereas an epicanthal fold is continuous with the lower edge of the upper eyelid.

Webs at the lateral or medial canthus are usually due to shortening of the anterior lamella. Treatment involves lengthening the skin, either using flaps or free skin grafts. In this video, the patient had a medial canthal web after a previous external DCR surgery. The scar is excised and the underlying defect is then repaired with a full thickness skin graft. A written transcript of this video is as follows: This is Richard Allen at the University of Iowa. This video demonstrates repair of a medial canthal web in a patient who had a previous external dacryocystorhinostomy. The prevision incision likely extended more superiorly than would be preferred. Various options could be considered including a combination of flaps as seen in another video. In this case, it was decided to excise the area of the vertical shortening and place a skin graft. A 15 blade is used to make an incision around the scar. Webs in general are due to shortening of tissue in the area. At the medial canthus, this can be both horizontal and vertical, but mostly vertical. Westcott scissors are used to excise the area of the scar and the skin. The resulting defect is noted which places the canthus in the correct position. A skin graft will be planned. Telfa is used to make a template of the defect. A retroauricular graft is then harvested and placed into position. The graft is sutured into position with interrupted 5-0 fast-absorbing sutures. The area of the shortening is resolved. 6-0 silk sutures are then placed at cardinal positions. Antibiotic ointment is placed over the graft followed by the bolster on top of Telfa. The bolster is fixated into position by tying the 6-0 silk sutures over it. The patient will follow-up in approximately 1 week for bolster removal and reevaluation. Currently, www.oculosurg.com is having technical difficulties. I hope to have them resolved by next week. Please contact me (Missy Gaido Allen) directly if you need access to a video of a specific surgical technique. Thank you!
This is a live demonstration of a Asian Double Eyelid Blepharoplasty Eyelift with a medial epicanthoplasty procedure to improve the epicanthal folds or web in the medial part of the eye. It is also a demonstration of an Asian Blepharoplasty Double Eyelid Crease Formation. Asian can lack an eyelid crease and this surgery is used to create one. Also to make the eyes look bigger, you can open up the eyes horizontally by opening up the eyes in the medial part next to the nose. This web of skin is called the epicanthal folds.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Telecanthus refers to increased distance between the medial canthi of the eyes, while the inter-pupillary distance is normal. This is in contrast to hypertelorism, where the inter-pupillary distance is increased. The distance between the inner corner of the left eye and the inner corner of the right eye, is called intercanthal distance. In most people, the intercanthal distance is equal to the distance between the inner corner and the outer corner of each eye, that is, the width of the eye. The average interpupillary distance is 60–62 millimeters (mm), which corresponds to an intercanthal distance of approximately 30–31 mm. The situation, where intercanthal distance is intensely bigger than the width of the eye, is called telecanthus (tele= Greek ???? = far, and Greek ?????? = thorn). This can be an ethnic index or an indication for hypertelorism or hypotelorism, if it is combined with abnormal relation to the interpupillary distance (A D STEAS). Traumatic Telecanthus refers to telcanthus resulting from traumatic injury to the nasal-orbital-ethmoid (NOE) complex. The diagnosis of traumatic telecanthus requires a measurement in excess of those normative values. The pathology can be either unilateral or bilateral, with the former more difficult to measure. Telecanthus is often associated with many congenital disorders. Congenital disorders such as Down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, Cri du Chat syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, Turner syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Waardenburg syndrome often present with prominent epicanthal fold and if these folds are nasal (most commonly are) they will cause telecanthus.
