FIGURE 1-30A-F. Abnormally close proximity of the nasal placodes and subsequent deficiency in medial nasal prominence development results in the development of a small nose and a long upper lip (from nose to mouth) with a deficient philtrum. Variable degrees of severity of effect in ethanol-exposed mouse fetuses results in phenotypes comparable to those in humans with fetal alcohol syndrome (A,B), cebocephaly (C,D), and premaxillary agenesis (E,F).
