Abstract

The authors describe the case of a mentally very labile boy suffering from strabism. When he was excited, the deviation of the affected eye increased, diplopia, nausea and headache developed. Hypnosis was applied and the condition improved after 12 sessions. His behaviour changed and progress in school improved. The authors draw attention to new therapeutic possibilities of some forms of strabism in mentally labile children by application of hypnosis.
