Myotonic dystrophy is a disorder with frequent ophthalmologic features. A 44-year-old black male with myotonic dystrophy is described. The patient displays a previously unreported type of motility disturbance in myotonic dystrophy in which there is an apparent limitation of motility that simulates a bilateral internuclear ophthalmoplegia. Myotonic dystrophy may be considered as another possible cause of pseudo-internuclear ophthalmoplegia.
