Abstract

Moebius Syndrome (MS) is characterized by congenital paralysis of the 6th and 7th cranial nerves, sometimes combined with deficits in cranial nerves and with limb anomalies. We reported that identifying common upper extremity orthopedic manifestations of this syndrome would asist physicians who care for affected patients to promtly establish a dignosis and treatment plan. Our internal medical record system was queried and a keyword search for "Möbius/Moebius Syndrome" was conducted. The clinical data collected for each patient consisted of age at diagnosis, date of first and date of final follow-up, treatment type, treatment duration, and complications from treatment. Clinical data collected for hand and upper limb deformities included effected side, diagnosis, surgical procedures, and any post-op complications. All data was collected from radiographic images including X-ray, ultrasound, CT, and MRI imaging, and clinical, physical therapy, orthotics, and operative notes. As regards older reports, it is realized that abnormalities in upper extremity in MS is associated with PS. We wish that this descriptive study will be helpful for those physicians who encounter this rare disease, in terms of identifying and providing timely treatment for associated upper extremity abnormalities and for assisting in counseling patients.
