Abstract

Unprogressive unilateral or bilateral limited ocular motility, with or without ptosis, is a hallmark of the uncommon congenital disease known as congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscle (CFEOM). Fibrosis of the extraocular muscle leads to optic nuclear dysplasia or hypoplasia and reduced ocular mobility, which in turn causes it. diverse phenotypes of illness might cause patients to report with diverse presentations.

Keywords: Congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscle, congenital syndrome, inherited strabismus syndromes
