Nasal Septum Deviation in Infants and Children
Nasal septum deviation (NSD) is seen more frequently in babies born to vaginal birth!
Types of nasal septum deviations in newborns
There are 2 types of NSD in newborns. (1) Anterior dislocation - external deformity of the nose is seen where the septal cartilage exits the maxillary groove. (2) Secondly, combined septal deformity occurs due to the forces transmitted in the fetal skull during pressure and external deformity may not be seen. In the above picture, the patient has a caudal septal deviation or anterior septal dilocation. You can find detailed information about the deviation of caudal septum >> Caudal Septal Deviation

Test for screening septum deviation in newborn babies: "Gray 's Strut Test"
Strut test is not a test done routinely. Although septum deviation is detected in neonates, limited septoplasty procedures can be performed in patients with complete curvature and completion of nasal development for surgical treatment. In other words, the diagnosis of septum deviation in neonates will usually only be useful for explaining the cause of nasal congestion and related symptoms.
