  • Acromelic frontonasal dysostosis (AFND) [MIM:603671]: A rare variant form of frontonasal dysplasia, an array of abnormalities affecting the eyes, forehead and nose and linked to midfacial dysraphia. The clinical picture is highly variable. Major findings include true ocular hypertelorism, broadening of the nasal root, median facial cleft affecting the nose and/or upper lip and palate, unilateral or bilateral clefting of the alae nasi, lack of formation of the nasal tip, anterior cranium bifidum occultum, a V-shaped or widows peak frontal hairline. AFND is characterized by the association of frontonasal malformations with various combinations of polydactyly, tibial hypoplasia, epibulbar dermoid, encephalocoele, corpus callosum agenesis and Dandy-Walker malformation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25105228}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
