The clinical features and management of 17 cases of detached extraocular muscles are described. They are classified into four groups: (1) the muscle which is cut and lost during squint surgery, (2) the muscle which breaks during squint surgery, (3) the muscle which slips following squint surgery, and (4) the muscle which is damaged during facial or orbital trauma. The prognosis for group 1 is poor whereas groups 2-4 have a good chance of successful muscle relocation.
