Moon facies, or moon face, is a medical sign which people are often born with, resulting in a large chin and large forehead. This results in a 'moon' shape, when looked at from the side. It is often associated with Cushing's syndrome or steroid treatment (especially corticosteroids), which has led to it being known as Cushingoid facies ("Cushings-like face").
