As with our second patient, there are patients who postoperatively develop limitation of movement in the IO muscle field and diplopia on upgaze, similar to Brown's syndrome. (8) Patients undergoing surgery should be informed about complications such as iatrogenic restriction and under- or overcorrection.
Prior to surgery, patients should be informed that diplopia may persist postoperatively, especially in downgaze, that this may necessitate an additional intervention or the use of prisms, and that iatrogenic Brown's syndrome may develop and cause diplopia in upward gaze.
Optic nerve involvement in the form of neuritis or ischaemic neuropathy has been reported and tenosynovitis of the superior oblique muscle sheath (Brown's syndrome) is also an occasional manifestation.
