We report a case of paraneoplastic retinopathy in a patient who was found to have small cell carcinoma of the lung and was shown to have serum antibody against retinal soluble 70 kDa protein. A 71-year-old woman visited her ophthalmologist for gradual visual loss in both eyes. Although she underwent uncomplicated cataract surgery in her left eye, she was(More)
Isometric active force and passive load were measured quantitatively in five patients with dysthyroid myopathy during the alert state, to analyze the mechanism of ocular motor disturbance. The results were as follows: (1) the active forces in both agonist and antagonist muscles working in the direction of ocular limitation showed normal values and(More)
A 16-year-old boy with acute ophthalmoplegic polyneuritis (Fisher's syndrome) exhibited bilateral internal ophthalmoplegia, but only lateral rectus and superior oblique eye movements were affected. Gaze-evoked nystagmus was also present on left lateral gaze. Pupillary reflex recovered 7 weeks after onset, but neither cholinergic supersensitivity nor(More)
It is well known that the mammalian extraocular muscle has slow muscle fiber morphologically. But the contraction speed of slow muscle fiber has not been mentioned in previous reports. We studied the isotonic contraction of slow muscle fiber and compared it with fast muscle fiber. Each fiber bundle was isolated from the rabbit superior rectus muscle. Both(More)
