PMID:  14521504     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
BACKGROUND: Esotropia during opiate withdrawal is a new clinical syndrome that has only recently been reported in the literature. METHODS: Clinical case series. RESULTS: Five patients with acute esotropia during opiate withdrawal are presented. In four there was evidence of underlying hyperopia and/or other strabismogenic features. CONCLUSIONS: The precise cause of esotropia with heroin withdrawal is uncertain. Most (and possibly all) of these patients have one or more objective strabismogenic features, and these are probably a large factor in the causation.
