Mobius Syndrome

Biology Research Project

Why I pick this subject

I pick this subject because I want to learn what Mobius Syndrome is. I wanted to know if this disease is a common disease. How this disease is inherited and how to prevent it from happening.

Definition of the disorder

It makes people weaker. It affects the muscles that control the facial expression and movement.

Description of the symptoms

They are not able to smile, frown, raise their eye browns, sometimes they cant blank, or they cant move their eyes side to side.

Cause of the disorder

When the body is not fully developed in the 6th and 7th cranial. There are other cranial nerves that sometimes occur.

Disorder is inherited

This disorder is a sex-linked. They are located in chromosomes 3, 10, 13.

Disorder is treated

They are usually benefits from physical and speech therapy to improve their gross motor skills and coordination, and that they can gain control of their speaking and eating.


Moebius Syndrome is not a diagnostic test. It is made by clinical examination.

Likely to have the disorder

It affects 1 in 50,000 to 1 in 500,000 newborn baby's. Moebius syndrome is a rare neurological condition. Moebius syndrome has nothing to do with location. It occurs from birth.

App. of research

I learned that this is a rare disease that affects your muscles. It gives me the reason why kids look deformed and cross eyed. I learned that this disease is really painful because it destroys your face and body.
