Duane's syndrome, is a rare retraction anomaly, characterized by innervational defect in the lateral rectus muscle, limitation of abduction and adduction due to result of abnormal innervation of the horizontal rectus muscles, changes in the eyelid fissures, and abnormal vertical eye movements. The affected eye is displaced up and / or down in the adduction. This syndrome, also known as Stilling-Turk-Duane syndrome, accounts for approximately 1 to 5 percent of all strabismus cases. In this article we present a one and a half year old male patient who had abnormal head position, was diagnosed with Duane retraction syndrome. By this study we want to draw attention to Duane retraction syndrome which is one of the rare causes of strabismus.
