A broad dorsum of the nose with epicanthal folds through which the nasal aspect of the palpebral fissure appears shortened can often simulate strabismus in small children (Fig. 17.12). The child's eyes appear esotropic especially when gazing to the side. Testing with a focused light will reveal that the corneal reflexes are symmetrical, and there will be no eye adjustments in the cover test. Usually the epicanthal folds will spontaneously disappear during the first few years of life as the dorsum of the nose develops.
