Post traumatic isolated ipsilateral oculomotor nerve palsy An uncommon presentation

Main Article Content


The common causes of isolated third nerve palsy are microvascular infarction, intracranial aneurysm, diabetes, hypertension and atherosclerosis. Here we are presenting a case of 26-year female presenting with a history of head injury two months back. She presented with ptosis on the left side. On computed tomography, a large left-sided chronic subdural hematoma with significant midline shift was found. Isolated ipsilateral third nerve palsy is a rare presentation with unilateral chronic subdural hematoma. Improvement in ptosis after surgery indicate a good neurological outcome.
