PTOSIS

Anatomy-Head

PTOSIS

1. COMPLETE PTOSIS - complete occulomotor palsy.

2. PARTIAL PTOSIS - division of the cervical sympathetic causes slight ptosis.

3. Intact function of the cervical sympathetic is not enough to compensate for loss of function of the skeletal part.

4. Note that facial nerve paralysis prevents screwing of the eye.
