Family studies suggest that there is a strong genetic component to the etiology of comitant strabismus. Seven cases of a family in three consecutive generations found to have isolated comitant exotropia. This pattern of inheritance is highly suggestive of an autosomal-dominant mode with complete penetrance which is an unreported finding in this entity.
