Occulomotor Nerve Palasy

Neurofibromatosis-2 previously also known as central neurofibromatosis is characterized by bilateral acoustic schwannomas. Other cranial nerve schwannomas such as 5th, 7th 9th 10th are also known to occur but they generally occur in combination with 8th nerve schwannomas(1-3). Oculomotor nerve schwannomas are a rare clinical occurrence. Bilateral oculomotor nerve schwannomas are extremely rare occurrence with no case reported in literature. We report a rare case of bilateral oculomotor nerve schwannomas presenting with ptosis and third nerve palsy and discuss management options in such patients.
