• Faulty egocentric localization or "past pointing" has been reported in the literature only in association with paralysis or paresis of extraocular muscles, or mechanical restrictions of the globe. A case of past pointing associated with comitant strabismus, without evidence of extraocular muscle paralysis, paresis, or restriction is presented. This is believed to be the first reported case of past pointing in a patient with a comitant deviation.
