Abstract

Marcus Gunn jaw winking phenomenon is a congenital synkinetic movement due to synkinesis between the upper eyelid and the pterygoids and it accounts for 8% of patients with congenital ptosis. In rare instances, ptosis may be absent. We present a case of Marcus Gunn Jaw Winking phenomenon without ptosis at presentation.
