The paper reports the case of a girl affected by progressive scoliosis and paralysis of the horizontal gaze, and reviews previously published cases. This is a rare and little known neurological entity transmitted by recessive autosomal inheritance. To all effects, this appears to be the first report of an Italian case. A correct early diagnosis is of considerable importance in view of appropriate genetic counselling.
