An Atypical Radiologic Presentation of Right Sixth Lateral Rectus Palsy: A Case Report.


Mirchandani A, Saleem S, Sivaswamy L
Cureus. 2022 Dec; 14(12):e32597.
PMID: 36660533.


Isolated ocular palsies are often associated with a benign process in the pediatric population but early diagnosis is critical to exclude any serious pathology. In this case, a six-year-old female with no significant past medical history presented with isolated right-eye medial deviation. The patient reported right-eye medial deviation for the past several weeks and associated double vision, but denied any pain with eye movements, other cranial nerve changes, or headaches. This case highlights the key radiologic finding which may ultimately allow for a leading diagnosis and inform further management in cases of isolated ocular nerve palsy.
