Abberrant muscular insertions in Crouzon's disease

J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus. 1980 Jul-Aug;17(4):239-41. doi: 10.3928/0191-3913-19800701-10.


Herein we present a case of Crouzon's disease with anomalous medial rectus formation and horizontal recti insertions. This adds a feature of the disease to the literature and reminds us to approach strabismus in orbital anomalies cautiously via a limbal peritomy. As the overall prognosis for these patients continues to improve we anticipate that more of these patients will seek strabismus surgery.
