An esotropia (ET) presenting during the first 6 months of life is termed infantile esotropia. There are various presentations of infantile esotropia with the following forms being the most common: small angle neonatal esotropia, congenital esotropia, Ciancia’ syndrome, and accommodative infantile esotropia. Normal newborn infants typically have a small exotropia (>70% of normal neonates) that usually resolves by 4 to 6 months of age. Infantile esotropia, on the other hand, is rare, and usually does not resolve spontaneously.
