2. Facial Characteristics

Children with Aarskog syndrome usually have distinctive facial features including a round face and eyes that are particularly wide-set or slanted in shape. The eyelids may have a sagging appearance and the nose can be unusually small or wide with slanting nostrils. People with Aarskog syndrome often have ears that fold down and a widow's peak. The condition can also cause a delay in tooth growth.
