Learn About Horizontal Gaze Palsy with Progressive Scoliosis

What is the definition of Horizontal Gaze Palsy with Progressive Scoliosis?
Horizontal gaze palsy with progressive scoliosis (HGPPS) is a rare disorder that affects vision and also causes an abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis). People with this condition are unable to move their eyes side-to-side (horizontally) and must turn their head instead of moving their eyes to track moving objects. HGPPS is caused by changes in the ROBO3 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.
