Deviated Septum

Deviated Septum

A deviated septum is a disorder in which the septum (the bone and cartilage that divides the nasal cavity) is displaced making one side smaller than the other. A deviated septum may cause difficulty breathing and may lead to compromised drainage of the sinuses on the deviated side.
