Also known as: Moebius syndrome
Moebius Syndrome is a rare condition which primarily affects the 6th and 7th cranial nerves, leaving those with the condition unable to move their faces (they can’t smile, frown, suck, grimace or blink their eyes) and unable to move their eyes laterally.
It is thought to be caused by a vascular disruption early in fetal development. It is typically a sporadic occurrence, meaning it is not an inherited condition.
With close medical attention, the prognosis for most children with this condition is positive.
