Abstract

Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy, one of the variants of chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia, is a disorder characterized by progressive bilateral ptosis, immobility of the eyes and dysphagia. We have experienced a 46-year-old woman complaining of bilateral ptosis, mild dysphagia and immobility of the eyes. Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy was confirmed by clinical, electromyographic and histopathologic examination. Therefore, we report a case of oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy with review of literatures.
