Asymmetric crying facies
A neonate presented with asymmetric movement of lower lip since birth. It was more pronounced when the child cried or smiled. The child was born full term with no complications. Physical examination revealed no respiratory distress and normal otologic, nasal and oral cavity exam. Facial nerve function as determined by frowning/forehead, wrinkling eye closure and tearing was symmetric.

let's see who can guess the pathogy behind the condition and how to diagnose the same.
