Abstract

Congenital nasal pyriform aperture stenosis is a rare cause of nasal obstruction in the neonate. This condition is caused by a bony overgrowth of the median nasal process of the maxilla. An appropriate workup includes evaluation for associated anomalies and fine-cut CT. Surgical treatment is indicated in patients with respiratory difficulty or poor weight gain.
