Internuclear ophthalmoplegia (INO) is a disorder of conjugate gaze due to a defect in the medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF).
Internuclear ophthalmoplegia, resulting from an inflammatory demyelinating lesion in the medial longitudinal fasciculus, is characterised by impaired horizontal eye movement with a weak adduction deficit of the affected eye and an abduction nystagmus of the contralateral eye; this results in horizontal diplopia.
