Background: Duane retraction syndrome is the most common cause of congenital aberrant ocular innervation. We report referral practices, clinical characteristics and complications, prevalence of congenital and familial anomalies, and management outcomes from a clinic-based series. Methods: Retrospective clinic-based study of 65 patients with Duane retraction syndrome seen between January 1994 and March 2004. Results: The majority of patients were girls with type I Duane retraction syndrome associated with Duane retraction syndrome. There was significant delay between identification of an abnormality and presentation at the eye clinic.
