Abstract

Moebius syndrome is a rare entity characterized by unilateral/ bilateral facial nerve palsy with or without other cranial nerve palsies and limb malformations. Etiology is largely unknown. We describe a case of Moebius syndrome who had bilateral facial and abducens nerve palsies and bilateral congenital talipes equino varus with possible cause being fetal misoprostol and mifepristone exposure.
