KRIEGER, Fernanda Teixeira and GOLDCHMIT, Mauro. Surgical correction of strabismus in Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome: case reports. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 2009, vol.72, n.1, pp. 99-102. ISSN 0004-2749. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-27492009000100020.
Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome is a rare and acquired autoimmune disorder. We describe two female patients with medial rectus paresis as the only ocular manifestation. After a unilateral medial rectus recession and lateral rectus resection procedure, both patients recovered normal adduction. To our knowledge, this is the first report of surgery for extraocular muscle paresis in Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome.
