Abstract

Abstract A 58 year old man developed bilateral optic neuritis and external ophthalmopleia nine months before presentation with a small cell carcinoma of the lung. There was no evidence of central nervous system metastases and his ocular symptoms responded to corticosteroid therapy. (Aust NZ J Med 1986; 16: 703–704.)
