Bilateral ophthalmoplegia is that condition of weakness or paralysis involving one or more ocular muscles in each eye. Its sudden appearance due to an acute ocular myopathy is indeed unusual. Swash reported a single patient with acute necrotizing orbital myositis and carcinomatosis neuromyopathy. The more common bilateral ocular muscle diseases, such as dysthyroid exophthalmopathy, orbital myositis, and progressive external ophthalmoplegia, develop insidiously and are restricted to the orbit.
