This paper describes the oxygen-induced ocul-ar syndrome in an adult (male, 35-yrs) suffering from myasthenia gravis.

After the onset of myasthenic crisis 80% oxy-gen was breathed and the resulting arterial o-xygen tension was 250 to 300 mmHg. The pa-tient complained of impaired vision in each eye after the hyperoxic period of 5 months. Oph-thalmoscopic examination revealed loss of visi-ble blood column, perivascular sheathing and marked edema in the posterior region of the fundi.
