The nose forms from the frontal, medial and lateral nasal prominences of the nasal placode and the maxillary processes. Malformation of the nose is variable; it may be unilateral or bilateral and may be complete absence of the nose called arhinia or isolated absence of the alae narsi. Anomalies of the nose may be associated with defects involving structures that originate from the first and second branchial arches but its association with cutaneous pigmentary disorder and anasarca is a rare occurrence. Therefore a case of a three-month-old girl with such combination is reported.
