Abstract

We report the case of a child with a rare condition of congenital restrictive ophthalmoplegia affecting the right eye. The condition comprised unilateral fibrosis, blepharoptosis and enophthalmos but without the intraorbital mass typical of congenital orbital fibrosis which was once considered a rare form of congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscles. The history, clinical features of the condition, and current understanding of congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscles were reviewed.
