142 Possible Causes for Pseudo-Ptosis

  • Duane Retraction Syndrome Type 2

    Narrowing of the palpebral aperture (Pseudo-Ptosis) on attempted adduction is a well known feature of the syndrome and was present in all our cases.[ijo.in] Male (3:2) Mostly sporadic, isolated familial patterns reported SIGNS Strabismus Anomalous head position Limitation to horizontal versions Globe retraction, enophthalmos, pseudo-ptosis[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] Surgical management of severe cocontraction, globe retraction, and pseudo-ptosis in Duane syndrome.

  • Blepharoptosis

    The diagnostic categories of ptosis are scheduled as pseudo-ptosis, congenital, and acquired ptosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Similarly, ptosis may occur in victims of Botulism (caused by Botulinum toxin ) and this is also regarded as a life-threatening symptom Pseudo ptosis due to: Lack of lid support[en.wikipedia.org] First, the diagnosis of ptosis should be established by considering four clinical measurements: palpebral fissure height, marginal reflex distance, upper eyelid crease, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Ectropion Uveae

    (This can be divided into pseudo-ptosis or true ptosis) 1.Pseudo-ptosis (This is uncommon if the request is to examine an eye with ptosis.[mrcophth.com] Congenital Acquired involutional cicatricial such as ocular cicatricial pemphigoid or chemical burnt iatrogenic from over-correction for ectropion Return to the top Ptosis[mrcophth.com]

  • Leigh Syndrome of Adult

    Leigh syndrome is a mitochondrial disease of infancy and early childhood and is rare in adults. We report an autopsy case of adult Leigh syndrome of 15 years duration in a 32-year-old man with a familial history of the disease. His initial symptom was clumsiness followed by dullness, and dysphasia and dysarthria[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vertical Heterotropia

    A simple test is all we need for differentiating between a true and pseudo-ptosis. The hypotropic eye with the ptosis is made to fix.[geocities.ws] If the sound eye fixes and the affected eye is hypotropic, there is a pseudo-ptosis, which must be recognized for what it is, to avoid unwanted ptosis surgery.[geocities.ws] In the case of a pseudo-ptosis due to hypotropia (and lid following the movement of the eye), the ptosis disappears when the eye is placed in primary position.[geocities.ws]

  • Abducens Nerve Palsy

    Infants may present with face turn or because of the pseudo-ptosis .[neuroophthalmology.ca] Sometimes the retraction responsible for pseudo-ptosis develops later, after the abduction deficit is already manifest (75).[neuroophthalmology.ca]

  • Congenital Upper Palpebral Retraction
