138 Possible Causes for Exotropia, Unilateral Ptosis

  • Oculomotor Nerve Paralysis

    RE exotropia with diplopia 7.[] A few key points once more: The oculomotor palsy is characterized by unilateral ptosis and an eye that is down and out.[] Thus, unilateral ptosis indicates that only the brainstem fascicles were affected.[]

  • Congenital Ptosis

    Cases of DVD associated with A- pattern eso or exotropia and superior oblique overaction have been reported, although rarely.[] […] were found in patients with mild or moderate unilateral ptosis.[] Seven patients (11 eyes) simultaneously underwent exotropia correction, and inferior oblique myectomy was performed in 3 patients (3 eyes) with congenital superior oblique[]

  • Strabismus

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    By contrast, control EOM from a patient undergoing strabismus surgery for a sensory exotropia in a nonseeing eye and a similar duration of deviation, showed normal muscle[] A46-year male presented with unilateral ptosis and diplopia.[] CPEO has little to no diurnal variation, and patients usually do not have diplopia (although the author has encountered many patients with CPEO and exotropia).[]

  • Brain Stem Disorder

    Although the range of horizontal eye movements is generally spared, V pattern esotropia, exotropia or convergence insufficiency are common.[] Patients often have a Horner's syndrome (unilateral ptosis, miosis and facial anhidrosis).[] However, a lateral fascicular III lesion affecting the superior recti, inferior oblique and levator may cause a monocular elevator palsy with unilateral ptosis (51).[]

  • Duane Retraction Syndrome

    Of the 140 patients with Duane retraction syndrome and exotropia, 59 (42%) were male.[] Clinical description DRS is a congenital disorder, characterized by non-progressive horizontal ophthalmoplegia without ptosis.[] Additional risk factors for exotropia after VRT and subsequent MR muscle recession include preoperative exotropia in adduction and smaller deviation at near.[]

  • Congenital Fibrosis of Extraocular Muscles

    Exotropia: New Insights for the Healthcare Professional: 2011 Edition is a ScholarlyPaper that delivers timely, authoritative, and intensively focused information about Exotropia[] While CFEOM 1 typically involves bilateral ptosis and ophthalmoplegia, CFEOM 3 has a more variable phenotype in which ptosis may be unilateral, ophthalmoplegia may be mild[] It can be congenital or acquired, isolated or syndromic, unilateral or bilateral.[]

  • Blepharoptosis

    […] for ptosis Of types of operation Clinical Anomalies Associated with Ptosis Abnormal extraocular motility Weakness of the superior rectus and/or the inferior oblique muscle Exotropia[] There were 51 (77.3%) patients with unilateral ptosis and 15 (22.7%) patients with bilateral ptosis.[] There was a suggestion of a right hypotropia and exotropia at times although the eyes appeared orthotropic in the primary position for near and distance targets.[]

  • Ocular Palsy

    […] by exotropia and esotropia.[] A few key points once more: The oculomotor palsy is characterized by unilateral ptosis and an eye that is down and out.[] […] of cerebral nerve palsies in patients suffering from sarcoidosis has recently been emphasized by Longcope and Freeman. 1 Facial paralysis, diplopia, strabismus, partial ptosis[]

  • Chronic Progressive External Ophthalmoplegia

    The most common strabismus findings were large angle exotropias (mean 47 prism diopters), half of which had associated vertical deviations.[] @article{f8cb53383c8342d6803dc306d7dfc56d, title "RE: “Unilateral Ptosis and Homolateral Hemifacial Weakness in Chronic Progressive External Ophthalmoplegia”", author "Yen[] We illustrate the unilateral nature of this case and demonstrate the caveats of performing myogenic ptosis correction in such patients.[]
