Oculomotor nerve palsy

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

MRI - eyes open

This patient presented with an acute oculomotor nerve palsy on the right. The lenses are usually seen on MRI and often on CT and can act as a clue to the diagnosis provided the scan is performed with eyes open; if the eyes are closed then discongugate gaze may be present in normal individuals. In this case, no cause for the palsy could be found.
