What is Brown Syndrome?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
Brown syndrome is a condition brought on by a malfunction of the Superior oblique muscle, causing the eye to have difficulty moving up, particularly during adduction (when eye turns towards the nose).
According to the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, Brown syndrome may be acquired or congenital. Acquired Brown syndrome is uncommon but may be seen following surgery, after trauma or in association with inflammatory diseases. Inflammation of the tendon-trochlea complex (from adult and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and sinusitis) can be associated with development of the problem. Sometimes the cause is never identified.
