    A 14 year old boy underwent a 7 hour long spinal surgery for scoliosis in the prone position. In the immediate postoperative period, he developed right proptosis, periorbital swelling, chemosis and total ophthalmoplegia. The vision in his right eye was only counting fingers and the intraocular pressure was 68 mmHg. Fundus examination revealed occlusion of the right central retinal artery. A rare manifestation of both vein and artery occlusion was possible in this patient as a result of external ocular compression due to a prolonged period in the prone position. This report highlights the importance of being aware of the possible complications of external ocular compression in non-ocular surgery.

    Miller Fischer syndrome (MFS) is a variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome first described in 1956 and is characterised by the clinical triad of ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and areflexia. However, since its discovery, forme fruste and overlapping syndrome have been described. A forme fruste of MFS implies an attenuated form where not all of the clinical triad are present. In this report, a case of MFS is highlighted that was mistakenly treated as posterior circulation stroke, as well as the challenges faced in reaching the correct diagnosis and hence the appropriate treatment.
