TITO, M.  and  PIERO, C.. Orthognathic surgery and rhinoplasty in Binder syndrome. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.2, pp.109-116. ISSN 2173-9161.

Binder syndrome is a disorder characterized by nasomaxillary hypoplasia that results in a short nose, a frontonasal angle of almost 180 degrees, hypoplasia of the frontal sinuses, an absent anterior nasal spine, a short columella and an acute nasolabial angle. The patient can be treated orthodontically or surgically depending on the seriousness of the malformation. We review the literature on the etiology, differential diagnosis and treatment of Binder syndrome. We present the case of a boy with this syndrome surgically treated with orthognatic surgery and rhinoplasty with an L-shaped rib cartilage graft.

Keywords : Maxillonasal dysplasia; Binder syndrome; Rib cartilage graft.
