Deformation of the mandible due to neonatal moulding: a 10-year follow-up.Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 2005 Sep; 34(6):686-9.IJ
A 3-day-old infant with paralysis of the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve and asymmetry of the mandible due to neonatal moulding is presented. Ten years after the initial presentation, the asymmetry and paralysis was still present. Orthodontic treatment has been instituted because of malocclusion. Surgical correction of the mandibular asymmetry after adulthood seems not to be necessary.
