Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day - January 24 2021

What is Moebius Syndrome?

Moebius syndrome is a rare neurological condition that can affect several cranial nerves, particularly those that control the muscles of the face. In most cases, the sixth and seventh cranial nerves are missing from birth (congenitally absent). The absence of these nerves leads to the characteristic facial paralysis and other symptoms of Moebius syndrome.

Moebius Syndrome was named after Dr. Paul Julius Moebius who first reported the condition in 1888.

Mission:

To educate and create awareness about Moebius Syndrome in order to enable those affected by it to live better lives.
