Abstract

Individual collagen fibers in the superior oblique tendon of patients with superior oblique palsy studied at 60 000x with transmission electron microscopy are fewer in number and larger in diameter when compared to normal fibers. The relationship of these changes to function and to gross morphologic changes are not clear.
