Cebocephaly came from the Greek words “kebos” which means “monkey” and “kephale” which means “head”. This congenital abnormality is characterized by the eyes set near each other and a small, flat, and proboscis-like nose which only has a single nostril. This condition is a part of the holoprosencephaly syndrome which is a cephalic disorder caused by the inability of the embryonic forebrain to develop into two hemispheres.
