NINDS:45 Moebius syndrome is a rare birth defect caused by the absence or underdevelopment of the 6th and 7th cranial nerves, which control eye movements and facial expression. Many of the other cranial nerves may also be affected, including the 3rd, 5th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th. The first symptom, present at birth, is an inability to suck. Other symptoms can include: feeding, swallowing, and choking problems; excessive drooling; crossed eyes; lack of facial expression; inability to smile; eye sensitivity; motor delays; high or cleft palate; hearing problems and speech difficulties. Children with Moebius syndrome are unable to move their eyes back and forth. Decreased numbers of muscle fibers have been reported. Deformities of the tongue, jaw, and limbs, such as clubfoot and missing or webbed fingers, may also occur. As children get older, lack of facial expression and inability to smile become the dominant visible symptoms. Approximately 30 to 40 percent of children with Moebius syndrome have some degree of autism.

MalaCards: Moebius Syndrome, also known as congenital facial diplegia, is related to mobius syndrome and myocardial infarction, and has symptoms including hand agenesis/absence, metacarpal anomalies/archibald's sign and cafe-au-lait spot. An important gene associated with Moebius Syndrome is MBS3 (Moebius syndrome 3), and among its related pathways are Selected targets of Oct 3 4 and Transcriptional Regulatory Network in Embryonic Stem Cell. The compound calcium have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, tongue and bone, and related mouse phenotype mortality/aging.

Genetics Home Reference:22 Moebius syndrome is a rare neurological condition that primarily affects the muscles that control facial expression and eye movement. The signs and symptoms of this condition are present from birth.

NIH Rare Diseases:44 Moebius syndrome is a rare neurological condition that primarily affects the muscles that control facial expression and eye movement. signs and symptoms of the condition may include weakness or paralysis of the facial muscles; feeding, swallowing, and choking problems; excessive drooling; crossed eyes; lack of facial expression; eye sensitivity; high or cleft palate; hearing problems; dental abnormalities; bone abnormalities in the hands and feet; and/or speech difficulties. affected children often experience delayed development of motor skills (such as crawling and walking), although most eventually acquire these skills. moebius syndrome is caused by the absence or underdevelopment of the 6th and 7th cranial nerves, which control eye movement and facial expression. other cranial nerves may also be affected. there is no cure for moebius syndrome, but proper care and treatment give many individuals a normal life expectancy. last updated: 7/15/2013
