Abstract

A 62 year-old female was referred to our clinic with a complain of inadequate opening of her eyes for 2 years. As a result of the examinations done in the neurology clinic of a university hospital, the essential blepharospasm was diagnosed to the patient. The blepharospasm, combined with apraxia of eyelid opening, had restricted the patient's daily life.
