Such involvement is translated in facial paralysis.
There have been described around 500 cases in the world medical literature and some of them have received surgical treatment.
Moebius syndrome has also received other names such as congenital nuclear aplasia, childlike nuclear aplasia, Oculofacial congenital paralysis and facial diplegia.
Poland syndrome is another rare congenital abnormality of the chest wall, characterized by unilateral partial or total absence of the great pectoral muscle and ipsilateral symbrachydactyly.
However, the Moebius-Poland syndrome is rarer.
Its first case was recently reported in 2007 by Diego López de Lara et al.
In this article we will report this infrequent case; the combination between both syndromes Moebuis and Poland in a three –month- old male patient. Keywords: Moebius syndrome, Poland syndrome, facial paralysis hypoplasia, symbrachydactyly. El síndrome de Moebius es una sintomatología poco frecuente en la que los pares craneales sexto y séptimo están involucrados.
