We report a case of a 13-year-old female who presented in the medical emergency with seizures and was referred to the ophthalmology department for fundus examination. On examination, she was found to have bilateral asymmetric VIth and VIIth nerve palsy, bilateral horizontal gaze paresis (right > left), tongue atrophy, mask-like face, normal intelligence, prominent lower lip, and history of treated club foot. She was diagnosed to have Moebius syndrome based on the above findings. She also had some atypical features such as head tilt, significant refractive error, anisometric amblyopia, and horizontal nystagmus. Her computed tomography scan of the head revealed neurocysticercosis.
