Epicanthal fold

Epicanthal fold

Epicanthic fold, epicanthal fold, epicanthus, or simply eye fold are names for a skin fold of the upper eyelid, covering the inner corner of the eye. Other names for this trait include plica palpebronasalis and palpebronasal fold. One of the primary facial features often closely associated with the epicanthic folds is the nasal bridge; all else equal, a lower-based nose bridge is more likely to cause epicanthic folds, and a higher-based nose bridge is less likely to do so. There are various factors influencing whether someone has epicanthic folds, including geographical ancestry, age, and certain medical conditions. ... more on Wikipedia
