Chronic ophthalmoplegia with anti-GQ1b antibody.

Author information

The Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, Australia.


Anti-GQ1b antibodies are typically found in patients with the Miller Fisher syndrome, all of whom will have, by definition, acute ophthalmoplegia. The authors describe three patients with chronic ophthalmoplegia in the presence of persistently high titers of immunoglobulin G anti-GQ1b antibody detected in an ELISA, one of whom improved with immunotherapy. Anti-GQ1b antibodies may be associated with some cases of chronic ophthalmoplegia of unknown cause.
