Introduction: Moebius syndrome is a rare congenital neurological disease of unknown etiology, that involves several cranial nerves. The main clinical characteristic of this syndrome is the “mask-like face”, that is, the absence of facial expression in situations of sorrow or joy.

Objective: This study aims to describe the characteristics of Moebius syndrome and its main implications for dentistry.

Methodology: In this study, a literature review was carried out, with searches in the following databases: scholar.google.com, pubmed and medline. Furthermore, eight articles were selected, among which three were literature reviews and five were reports of clinical cases.

Results: In addition to the genetic relation of the syndrome, there are factors that lead to this disorder, such as the use of misoprostol during pregnancy, for example.

Conclusion: Early care for patients with Moebius syndrome by a multidisciplinary team is extremely important, since it will attenuate the effects of this pathology.


Keywords: Moebius syndrome, Facial paralysis, Misoprostol, Cranial nerves paralysis.
