A syndrome of congenital facial paralysis, frequently associated with abducens palsy and other congenital abnormalities including lingual palsy, clubfeet, brachial disorders, cognitive deficits, and pectoral muscle defects; Pathologic findings are variable and include brain stem nuclear aplasia, facial nerve aplasia, and facial muscle aplasia, consistent with a multifactorial etiology (Adams et al, Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1020)------------


Moebius Syndrome; Congenital Facial Diplegia Syndrome;

Congenital Oculofacial Paralysis; Mobius Syndrome;

Moebius syndrome is a rare developmental disorder present at birth (congenital) that is characterized by facial paralysis; Affected individuals are not able to smile or frown because two important nerves, the sixth (abducens) and seventh (facialis) cranial nerves are absent or not fully developed; In some instances, this syndrome may also be associated with physical problems in other parts of the body--------------[nord 2005]-----------------
