The association of brain lesions with strabismus was studied by reviewing brain magnetic resonance images of 96 children with developmental delays, 44 of whom had strabismus and 52 who did not. The children were classified into seven groups based on peri- or postnatal events: preterm infants with low birth weight, birth asphyxia or anoxia, abnormal delivery, neonatal jaundice, perinatal intracranial bleeding, seizure, and unknown factors. Comparison of the brain lesions in those with and without strabismus in each group showed that ventricular delatation and cerebral atrophy are strongly associated with strabismus in preterm infants with low birth weight or unknown factors.
