Marden Walker syndrome is a syndrome whose underlying pathological mechanism has not been clearly established yet. It is assumed that it is a developmental disorder of the central nervous system which is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. Three main characteristics and diagnostic criteria of the syndrome are blepharophymosis, congenital joint contractures and mask-like face. Numerous of other anomalies have been described and the exact gene that causes the disease is unknown. We present a thirteenyear-old girl with MWS and pain on the right side of the face to the ear. Medical repeatedly examination was not possible because of the strong spasm of orofacial musculature, as well as the examination of the oral cavity and the teeth. Vojta principles were applied during five days in the treatment, resulting with reduced spasm in orofacial musculature thus enabling the dentist to examine the child. This case report highlights the importance of continuous psychomotor stimulation because of prevention, progression and complications of deficits, as the importance of evaluating motor development and creating specific rehabilitation plan for each child. In this way we try maximizing the quality of child's life in accordance with the possibilities in everyday life of the parents and the child
