Post on Pyriform Aperture Stenosis
Pyriform aperture stenosis (PAS) is a very rare congenital anomaly where the anterior opening of the nose is narrow secondary to overgrowth of the maxillary bone. PAS is sometimes associated with other abnormalities, including the presence of a single central incisor tooth and pituitary abnormalities.
