The purpose of this report is to alert the ophthalmologist and neurologist to the fact that intermittent ocular symptoms may herald the onset of chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia and therefore resemble the weakness produced by myasthenia gravis. In addition, chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia may complicate the course of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.
