Some questions about CULLP (congenital unilateral lower lip paralysis)

Someone has some questions about CULLP (congenital unilateral lower lip paralysis).  I have tried Googling for this information with little success so am posting to my blog to see if anyone can help with answers.

These are the questions: –

1) With CULLP, is it the lower branch of the cranial nerve that is damaged, the absence/hypoplasia of the muscle of the lower lip OR both?

2) Would the damaged nerve cause malfomation/innervation in the muscles in utero?

3) What treatment is available for CULLP?
