External or internal ophthalmoloplegia will result in a complete or apartial ocular dysmotility leading to a debilitating and variable manifestbinocular diplopia for a majority of the patients. Complete third, forth andsixth nerve cranial nerve palsies are among the many number of etiologiesappearing as paralytic strabismus. Successful clinical management, eliminationof symptomatic diplopia in the primary field of gaze and increased binocularfield of motor and sensory fusion as a result of the oculomotor nerve IIIpalsy are challenging tasks for physicians facing this difficult clinicalentity.
