Congenital nasal anomalies are rare disorders that may present challenges to the facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. These anomalies are extremely varied and result from a wide range of disordered embryonic development. A basic understanding of nasal and facial development is helpful in understanding these anomalies. In addition, proper respect for the unique challenges of nasal surgery on infants and children is crucial to best serve the patient. This allows a proper work-up and consideration of appropriate treatment options before surgical repair.
