Abstract

Two patients with Moebius' syndrome are described, a brother and a sister. In addition to bilateral congenital facial nerve paralysis, both had deafness, an external deformity of the auricles, and a latent squint. The deafness in both cases was sensorineural in type; although there was paralysis of the motor part of the facial nerve, taste and lacrimation were intact. This report shows that not all components of the facial nerve are always effected in this syndrome.
