Abstract: : Purpose:: Identify the frequency of presence of "A" and "V" Syndromes that goes along with the strabologic pathology with and without accompanying horizontal deviations, as well as the most prevalent diagnosis accompanying, and most frequent gender and age presented in the studied patients. 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%). There was more prevalence in female patients and in pediatric age patients.
