About associated conditions for Mobius syndrome:

Associated conditions are those which appear statistically related, but do not have a clear cause or effect relationship. Whereas the complications are caused by Mobius syndrome, and underlying causes may be causes of Mobius syndrome, the following list shows associated conditions that simply appear with higher frequency in people who have Mobius syndrome. In some cases, there may be overlap between this list and risk factors for Mobius syndrome. People with Mobius syndrome may be more likely to get a condition on the list of associated conditions, or the reverse may be true, or both. Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply coincidentally related to Mobius syndrome is not always clear. For general information, see Associated Condition Misdiagnosis.
