intercanthal distance of the eyes
The distance between the inner corner of the left eye and the inner corner of the right eye, is called intercanthal distance. In most people, the intercanthal distance is equal to the distance between the inner corner and the outer corner of each eye, that is, the width of the eye. The situation, where intercanthal distance is intensely bigger than the width of the eye, is called telecanthus (tele= Greek τηλε = far, and Greek ακανθα = thorn). This can be an ethnic index or an indication for hypertelorism or hypotelorism, if it is combined with abnormal relation to the interpupillary distance (A D STEAS).
Examination of the head and neck should include evaluation of cranial sutures, anterior and posterior fontanelles, facial symmetry, hard and soft palate, patency of the ear canal, patency of both nares, position of the nasal septum, placement of the ears, and intercanthal distance of the eyes.
