Moebius syndrome is one of the rare disorders amongst the disorders of oromandibular limb hypogenesis with congenital non progressive bilateral or unilateral, complete or partial paralysis of the 6th and 7th cranial nerves. Occasionally, the V, X, XI, and XI1 cranial nerves are involved, resulting in difficulty of chewing, swallowing, and coughing, which often leads to respiratory complications. It is of unknown etiology with sporadic occurrence. This case report illustrates clinical features and dental abnormalities in a rare case of Moebius syndrome
