DISCUSSION: Asymmetric crying facies (ACF), also called Cayler cardiofacial syndrome, partial unilateral facial paresis and hypoplasia of depressor anguli oris muscle, (3) is a minor congenital anomaly caused by agenesis or hypoplasia of the depressor anguli oris muscle, one of the muscles that control the movements of the lower lip.
When the hypoplasia of the depressor anguli oris muscle is associated with congenital cardiac defects, the term 'Cayler cardiofacial syndrome' is used.
Then in quick succession, we add the smiling muscles, levator anguli oris (attaching just below the eye to lift the corners of the mouth) and the sadness muscles, levator labii superioris (Fig 4) (which deepen the nasiolabial fold when crying or being serious) and the depressor anguli oris, the disgust muscle (a triangular muscle attaching to the lower jaw at the side of the mouth) which lowers the corners of the mouth.
