The authors have compared the frequency of occurrence of nasal septum deformation in two groups of newborns, using the simplest testing methods for: 1. newborns born by spontaneous labor (254 newborns), 2. newborns born by caesarean section (52 newborns). The deformation from the central position of the nose were found in 2 newborns from group 2 (3.9%) and in as many as 50 newborns from group 1 (approx. 20%) providing the evidence that most deformations occur as a result of birth injury (during labor). 32 deformations (26 in the cartilaginous section of the nasal septum and 6 in the osseous section) have been tested repeatedly in the third or fourth week of life. 19 out of 26 deformations of the cartilaginous section of the nasal septum (73%) have been repositioned automatically. All deformations in the osseous section detected after birth were also analyzed physically in the third or fourth week of life.
