Asymmetric noses

These are characterised by the deviation of both cartilage and bone in lower 2/3 part of the nose. Asymmetry is sinusoidal. They may accompany severe nasal obstruction with sinusitis. 

Main reason is trauma. After trauma deviation in the cartilage, lowering of the nasal dorsum, synechia and depression in the alae are observed. 1.5-23% of newborn babies can have nasal deviation because of nasal taruma. Especially if forceps is used during birth. Immunologic and autoimmune disorders can cause asymmetric noses as well. Another reason is post operative complication. These problems are mostly corrected with open rhinoplasty techniques.

My persistent symptoms 31 May, 2013 - 12:14

I am writing to you from St. John's, Newfoundland (Canada). I have a sinus problem started in Nov 2008 upon working for more than a month in a gas plant. I did not have sinus problems prior to this date.

At that time, I may have been exposed to airborne asbestos and other irritants. In the place where I lived at that time, the Winter is so harsh. Temperature during Winter is normally at least 25 Cecilius below zero.
