Abstract

We describe an exceptional case of an intrinsic, spontaneous haematoma of the oculomotor nerve and review the literature. We conclude that, even in an elderly patient, an isolated cranial nerve palsy should be extensively investigated and, when necessary, surgically treated, since a good functional recovery is possible.
