A 10-day-old, full-term girl presented with a trunklike projection from the medial canthus of the left eye (Figure). There was no other craniofacial anomaly and bilateral nasal cavities were normal. The trunk was 2.5 cm in length connected with a thin pedicle. There was mucus discharge from the opening. There was no history of teratogenic exposure, no family history of congenital defects, and no history of consanguinity. Computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed no other associated craniofacial abnormality.
