Definition

A form of Duane retraction syndrome, a congenital eye movement disorder characterized by a failure of cranial nerve VI (the abducens nerve) to develop normally, resulting in restriction or absence of abduction, adduction or both, narrowing of the palpebral fissure, and retraction of the globe on attempted adduction. Undiagnosed in children, it can lead to amblyopia, a permanent uncorrectable loss of vision. Some DURS3 patients manifest sensorineural hearing loss.
