Duane syndrome is a rare condition, whose clinical presentation involves retraction of the eyeball upon attempted abduction, and limitation of horizontal movements. We present the case of an 11-year-old patient who presented to the Emergency Department with a recent-onset ocular deviation. Examination revealed a deficit in abduction and adduction, as well as closure of the palpebral fissure in forced adduction. The patient was diagnosed with Duane syndrome type III, and conservative management with observation and follow up was decided.
