Some, but not all, people with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) suffer from face blindness (prosopagnosia), a condition in which they have difficulty with facial recognition. It is one of the conditions known to occur occasionally with autism and Asperger's Syndrome.

Some people with AS have traits that seem similar to face blindness but is not. A person with Asperger's Syndrome who avoids looking at people will have difficulty identifying them by face. A person with Asperger's Syndrome might only look at a person's mouth and not other parts of the face.
