What is broad nasal bridge?

Also known as: wide nasal bridge

When the very top portion of the nose in a child is wider than typically expected, this is referred to as broad nasal bridge. In some cases, it is a normal facial feature, but it can also be indicative of certain genetic or hereditary medical conditions especially when present with other associated anomalies.
