  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We treated 19 cases of blepharospasm treated by injection of botulinum toxin. All cases resulted in alleviation of clinical symptoms. Lagophthalmos resulted in 4 cases. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed no atrophy or inflammation in the facial and extraocular muscles following treatment. The findings show the safety regarding morphology of orbicularis muscles of this therapeutic modality.
