Congenital facial paralysis (including Moebius Syndrome) is a rare form of facial paralysis that is detected in children at birth. To make the diagnosis, it is necessary to perform multiple studies, including a complete physical examination as it is necessary to rule out other malformations that may be associated with paralysis.
It is likely that a baby with congenital facial paralysis will present other disorders at birth such as: Microtia, cleft palate, deformity in their hands, arms or feet or have other mobility disorders in other areas of the face such as eyes or tongue.
Congenital paralysis can be divided into different categories:
– Unilateral or bilateral
– Traumatic or developmental
– Complete or incomplete
In addition to the problems present at birth, if congenital facial paralysis is not treated in time and does not resolve over time, this can result in problems tied to facial development such as speaking problems and issues with expressing emotions.
