Methods:This is a retrospective, comparative, lineal study in which we studied the patients'files of those who came for the first time to the HOL with Strabismus symptoms within a period from January 1990 to December 1999 with diagnosis of "A" and "V" syndromes with or without accompanying horizontal deviations. Results:: From 709 studied patients' files, 535 patients presented "V" syndrome with or without accompanying horizontal deviation (75.4%). 174 patients presented "A" syndrome with or without horizontal deviation (24.6%). The most frequent diagnosis was that of "V" syndrome accompanied by esotropia in 206 patients (29.0%). In general, these syndromes were most frequently presented in female patients (54.3%). The age with higher level of presence was between 5 and 7 years, that is to say, 191 children. Conclusion:The "V" syndrome is more frequently presented in relation to 3 to 1. The "V" and "A" syndromes are more frequently presented with horizontal deviations, up to 89%. The most common diagnosis was "V" syndrome with esotropia (29%).
