In all of the cases heretofore reported, I be-lieve, the condition has been bilateral and no complete ptosis.In the case about to be reported the condition was mono-lateral, with a complete ptosis, which raises the questionwhether or not ptosis is not always a concomitant condition inmonolateral cases and absent in bilateral cases.. Fig. 1 Miss Ethel S., age 19 years, family history negative, hasalways lived on a farm, physical condition good, subsequentlaboratory tests negative.

Some months after the opera-tion another reading was made and no protrusion or exophthal-mos was evident. The refraction of the eyes was as follows: R.V. = 20/100;20/30 w -f 1.75 D.S.; L.V. = 20/20; 20/20 w -f 1.00 D.S.
