Abstract

The authors studied the MRI findings of three patients with Möbius syndrome. Möbius syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by complete or partial facial diplegia accompanied by other cranial nerve palsies. MRI demonstrated brainstem hypoplasia with straightening of the fourth ventricle floor, indicating an absence of the facial colliculus. These MRI features suggest the diagnosis of Möbius syndrome and correlate with the clinical and neurophysiologic findings.
