Möbius-like syndrome associated with a 1;2 chromosome translocation.

Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, Yamaguchi University School of Medicine, Japan.


We report here a rare case of Möbius-like syndrome associated with a 1;2 chromosome reciprocal translocation (46,XY,t(1;2)(p22.3;q21.1). The patient had facial diplegia, ptosis, anteverted nostrils, malformed and lowset ears, and slight developmental delay. Since a microdeletion could be present at the breakpoint in a reciprocal translocation, it is possible that the gene responsible for Möbius syndrome is located in this region of chromosome 1.
