crossed cranial nerve - it means that nerve nucleus innervates the contralateral superior oblique
Acute retropharyngeal tendonitis (calcific tendonitis of the longus colli), initially described by Hartley in 1964, is an acute inflammation condition of the longus colli tendon, which is related to calcium hydroxyapatite deposition in the superior oblique
fibers of the longus colli muscles.
The lateral rectus is innervated by the sixth cranial (abducens) nerve and the superior oblique
by the fourth (trochlear) nerve.
Secondary IOOA develops due to weakness of the ipsilateral superior oblique
muscle or the contralateral superior rectus muscle.
Our patient had cysticerci in left superior oblique
demonstrated that unilateral inferior oblique myectomy performed in 27 eyes with superior oblique
palsy resulted in almost complete resolution of inferior oblique overaction and abnormal head position postoperatively.
