Nervus Abducens

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to visualize the subarachnoid portion of the Nervus abducens by magnetic resonance imaging and to analyze whether aplasia of the Nervus abducens is an etiologic factor in Duane's retraction syndrome. RESULTS: The Nervus abducens on the affected side could not be observed in 6 (54.5%) of 11 eyes (8 cases) that were clinically diagnosed as having Duane's retraction syndrome. The Nervus abducens was observed in 15 (94%) of 16 eyes that were screened as the control group. CONCLUSIONS: The results showed that aplasia of the Nervus abducens, although an important etiologic factor, is not the only factor responsible for the diagnosis of Duane's retraction syndrome..
