RESENDE, Débora Guimarães; NESPOLO, Daniele Foussalussa; ASSIS, Lorrana Luysse dos Anjos  and  CUNHA, Breno Resende Rodrigues da. Pierre Robin Syndrome associated with type III familial Duane Retraction Syndrome. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2019, vol.78, n.1, pp.46-48. ISSN 0034-7280.

The Pierre Robin Syndrome (PRS) consists of a triad of anomalies characterized by micrognathia, glossoptosis and fissure of the palate, usually associated with other syndromes e occasionally associated with ocular variations. In Duane Retraction Syndrome (DRS), there is a failure in the lateral rectus innervation by the VI cranial nerve, with anomalous innervation of the lateral rectus by fibers of the III nerve. Even though PRS has already been associated with more than 50 other syndromes, there is not any report in literature of association with familial DRS. Thus, this work aims to report a case of this association in a 29 years old patient with recurrence of the syndromes in the family.
