    The oculomotor nerve is the third cranial nerve (CN III). It enters the orbit via the superior orbital fissure and innervates extrinsic eye muscles that enable most movements of the eye and that raise the eyelid. The nerve also contains fibers that innervate the intrinsic eye muscles that enable pupillary constriction and accommodation (ability to focus on near objects as in reading). Patients with a right-sided midbrain infarction have a right oculomotor nerve palsy, which causes right ptosis, a dilated pupil, and diplopia–accompanied by left hemiparesis (Fig. ). With a slightly different right-sided midbrain infarction, patients have right oculomotor nerve palsy and tremor of left-sided limbs (Fig. ).

      A recurrent benign form of 6th nerve palsy, a rarer still palsy, has been described in the literature, and it is of presumed inflammatory etiology, associated with live attenuated vaccines, or following viral and bacterial infections such as Varicella zoster, Epstein-Barr virus, Cytomegalovirus, or Coxiella burnetii [5, 6].   Recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy occurs when the recurrent laryngeal nerve or vagus nerve becomes damaged. The condition paralyzes the larynx on one or both sides, depending on the severity of the damage. The condition is rare but serious and medical attention will be required.

      The topographical anatomy of the oculomotor nerve, with peripheral location of the pupillomotor fibers, may explain the tendency of pupil-sparing in patients with ptosis or diplopia. 18 Robert et al. noted that, in patients with oculomotor nerve palsy due to pituitary tumor, of all the muscles supplied by the third nerve, the levator palpebrae. Other uncommon etiologies include Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection, Chlamydia pneumoniae infection, and Lyme disease. 1,3,4 Benign recurrent abducens nerve palsy is a rare condition of unknown etiology..

The review of literature on MRI findings in child and adolescent patients affected by OM/RPON (according to ICHD classifications over time) showed only three cases with isolated schwannoma of the oculomotor nerve associated with migraine and oculomotor nerve palsy after a long time history of III nerve paresis and/or migraine (Table 1).

In Cited by: 2. We report the case of a year-old man who presented with malignant lymphoma as recurrent multiple cranial nerve palsy after spontaneous regression of oculomotor nerve palsy. He developed ptosis and diplopia due to right oculomotor nerve palsy.

Brain MRI/MRA showed no abnormality, and he recovered. Introduction: Recurrent oculomotor nerve palsies are extremely rare clinical conditions. Case report: Here, we report on a unique case of a short-lasting recurrent unilateral incomplete external and complete internal oculomotor nerve palsy.

The episodic palsies were probably caused by an ipsilateral mesencephalic metastasis of a breast carcinoma and occurred after Cited by: 1. The recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) is a branch of the vagus nerve (cranial nerve X) that supplies all the intrinsic muscles of the larynx, with the exception of the cricothyroid are two recurrent laryngeal nerves, right and left.

The right and left nerves are not symmetrical, with the left nerve looping under the aortic arch, and the right nerve looping From: vagus nerve.

The patient received no further medical treatment apart from that for amblyopia. In Julyat the age of 39 months, he developed a recurrent pupil-involving right third cranial nerve palsy following an acute viral gastroenteritis.

Examination showed complete ptosis and paresis of the muscles innervated by the right third cranial nerve. Purpose: A young patient of ophthalmoplegic migraine with recurrent oculomotor nerve palsy is reported.

Case: A 4-year-old girl came to our hospital complaining of recurrent left ptosis and double vision which completely resolved within a few days. She had a history of drowsiness after vomiting every two months. Left oculomotor nerve palsy with internal ophthalmoplegia was. The age- and sex-adjusted annual incidence of acquired third nerve palsy was 4 cases perThe annual incidence in patients older than 60 was greater than patients younger t predominantly due to a large increase in microvascular third nerve palsies in older adults.

In general, prognosis for benign recurrent 6 th nerve palsy is excellent. The majority of patients recover full muscle function and have resolution of all symptoms.

Benign 6 th nerve palsy post-immunization is a rare occurrence that generally resolves spontaneously but needs to be thoroughly investigated and followed-up to ensure best outcome. It is typically revealed by progressive palsy of the oculomotor nerve.

Recurrent painful ophtalmoplegia (as our patient) is very uncommon ; only four similar cases have been reported. In. We report a year-old girl who developed recurrent oculomotor nerve palsy caused by schwannoma without any vascular malformation.

Although the. Background. Recurrent painful ophthalmoplegic neuropathy (RPON), previously known as ophthalmoplegic migraine (OM), is an uncommon disorder with repeated episodes of ocular cranial nerve neuropathy associated with ipsilateral headache.

Recurrent third nerve palsy in any age group is rare; in childhood, most cases are attributed to ophthalmoplegic migraine (OM). This entity is characterized by onset in the first decade of life with headache or periorbital pain, nausea, and the simultaneous or subsequent development of a unilateral third nerve palsy followed by recovery over several weeks.

Recurrent painful ophthalmologic neuropathy (RPON), previously termed ophthalmoplegic migraine, is characterised by repeated attacks of one or more ocular cranial nerve palsies with ipsilateral headache. Its cause remains unclear; it is currently thought to be neuropathic in origin, but there is debate in the literature.
