Abstract

We describe a 47-year-old woman with progressive bilateral collapse of the alae nasi first noted at age 16 years. Her dizygotic twin daughters have similar nasal collapse beginning at age 20 years. This condition appears to be inherited as a dominant trait. Although plastic surgical correction has been successful for a phenotypically similar condition due to trauma, surgical correction must be considered cautiously in individuals with an atraumative, possibly inherited, progressive form of the disorder.
