The specific source of Meige syndrome is unidentified. Meige syndrome is characterized by the combination of blepharospasm and oromandibular dystonia. Meige syndrome usually influences middle-aged individuals. The regularity of muscular tissue convulsions and tightenings may increase causing narrowing of the opening between the eyelids or involuntary closure of the eyelids.
