Three cranial nerves carry motor impulses from the brain to the eyeball muscles: 1) oculomotor (cranial nerve III); 2) trochlear (cranial nerve IV); and, 3) abducens (cranial nerve VI) (Cohen and Hull, 2016).
(2) OAS can lead to dysfunction of the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve (cranial nerve V1), oculomotor nerve (cranial nerve III), trochlear nerve (cranial nerve IV), abducens nerve (cranial nerve VI), and optic nerve (cranial nerve II).
Dense concentrations of GQ1b ganglioside are found in the oculomotor nerve (cranial nerve III), trochlear nerve (cranial nerve IV) and abducens nerve (cranial nerve VI) of patients with MFS, which may explain the relationship between anti-GQ1b antibodies and ophthalmoplegia.
Isolated palsy of the oculomotor nerve (cranial nerve III) is seen in association with neoplasms, trauma, infarctions, hemorrhages, demyelination, aneurysms, inflammations, ischemias, infections, and uncal herniations.
