Objective To investigate the clinical manifestations,pathological changes and dignosis of chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia. Methods Clinical manifestations,pathological changes and diagnosis were analyzed in twelve patients with chronic progressive external opthalmoplegia (CPEO). Results In 12 patients,6 were male and 6 were female.The average age of onset was 11.6 years old.Two were siblings.All patients showed chronic progressive ptosis and difficulty in eye movements.All were symmetric except one at early stage.Besides ophthalmoplegia,4 had orbicularis weakness,1 had mild limb weakness,3 had endocrine dysfunction.Ragged-red fiber (RRF) positive muscle fibers and cytochnome cxidase (COX) deficient muscle fibers were much more than 2% in all specimens of muscle biopsies. Conclusions The major clinical manifestations of CPEO are progressive ophthalmoplegia,which can be accompanied with limb weakness.Ragged red fibers and COX deficiency fibers are crucial pathological clues for the diagnosis of CPEO.
