Learn About Oculomotor Apraxia Cogan Type

What is the definition of Oculomotor Apraxia Cogan Type?
Oculomotor apraxia Cogan type (COMA) is an eye condition characterized by a defect in side-to-side (horizontal) eye movements. Because of this, most patients with COMA have to turn their head in order to follow objects in side gaze. Typically, up-to-down (vertical) eye movements are unaffected. COMA can also be associated with mild developmental delay and speech difficulties. Individuals with COMA may also have kidney disorders and underdevelopment of the part of cerebellum that separates the left and right hemisphere of the brain (cerebellar vermis). When other symptoms occur, COMA may be a symptom of other disorders, such as nephronophthisis or Joubert syndrome. In many instances, the cause of COMA is not known. Cases support an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern.
