This 6-year-old girl demonstrates the typical characteristics of hemifacial microsomia. Frontal (A) and lateral (B) views demonstrate facial asymmetry and severe microtia with aural atresia. The chin point is deviated toward the right, with an upward cant of the ipsilateral commissure and nasal alar base. The facial soft tissue is less prominent on the right side. | Keogh, I.
