hypertelorism

An abnormal increase in the distance between bodily parts, usually referring to an abnormal separation of the eye sockets (orbits) due to a much widened and enlarged SPHENOID bone. Such hypertelorism is a congenital condition and is sometimes associated with other developmental abnormalities and with mental retardation.
