A descriptive retrospective study was conducted among 12 patients that were diagnosed Brown's syndrome and who were seen at the Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Office of "Ramón Pando Ferrer" Ophthalmological Teaching Hospital from January 1999 to January 2000 in order to determine the frequency of the affected eye and the severity degree, to identify the symptoms that motivated the visit, to determine the criteria that decided the surgical procedure and to describe the associated horizontal and vertical deviations. In the studied sample, 50 % of the patients had the right eye affected and 70 % of the cases presented a mild state of the disease. The limitation of the elevation in abduction was present in 100 % of the cases, 30 % of the cases had surgical criterion and 90 % presented associated deviations
