Abstract

The authors report the 10-year follow-up of a case with a recurrent ptosis affecting both eyelids independently. The histology of the levator palpebrae superioris and Muller's muscle was consistent with a localised myopathic process. A therapeutic response to acetazolamide suggests that ion-channel dysfunction may be the underlying cause for this new myopathy.
