Percentage of newborns with deviation of nasal septum: (AIIMS Nov 2011)



A 2%
B 10%

C 20%
D 50%

Ans. C 20%

During normal parturition the fetal head is directed caudally and passes through the pelvic brim.

The Caucasian head is widest at the occipitonasal diameter. Up to 20% of babies born in this manner are found to have squashed noses. The majority spring back into place but about 1-2% are left with a permanently deviated septum.

This may not be apparent initially but subsequently gives rise to nasal obstruction and snuffles.
