Duane retraction syndrome type I, Marcus Gunn jaw-winking and crocodile tears are all syndromes of congenital aberrant innervation. The authors describe a 17-month-old boy with Duane retraction syndrome type I, Marcus Gunn Jaw-winking, and crocodile tears in the same eye and discuss the proposed mechanisms of these conditions.
