Frontonasal dysplasia (FND) is a very rare congenital abnormality in which the mid face does not develop normally. It affects mainly the head and face. Cause is unknown but may be sporadic or familial. We report a rare case of a full term baby who presented with classical features of FND in Maiduguri, Nigeria. Management difficulty in resource limited setting is highlighted.

Key words: Dysmorphism, Frontonasaldysplasia, Neonate.
