Ocular findings in botulism type B.

Abstract

In April 1977, fifty-nine persons became ill with type B botulism in a large, common-source outbreak. A combination of signs and symptoms that should make the clinician strongly suspect botulism was derived from the histories and ocular findings of these persons. Certain signs of third cranial nerve dysfunction reliably predicted in which patients ventilatory insufficiency would develop.
