  • Well, yes and no.

    Like a lot of fancy-sounding $20 word diagnoses, this one is just the word that means 'spread apart'... so if you had kidneys that were wider set than normal, it would be called that --no matter what the cause was determined to be.

    So yes, it is the medical description of wide-set eyes... whether or not it is paired with any kind of diagnosis.
