    Have you checked his sugar levels? I had seen few diabetic patients with similar symptoms.
    Also it can be mere occular migraine.

    Hello,

    The symptoms are very concerning for a third nerve palsy with ptosis and mydriasis. Any oculomotor abnormality? Patient needs vessel imaging (i.e. MRA or CTA) to rule out compressive etiology such as PiCOM aneurysm if he has a third nerve palsy with pupil involvement. Other causes of third nerve palsy (i.e. microvascular in setting of diabetes, etc...) should be investigated if he does have a third nerve palsy.

    Sincerely

    Thanks for the suggestion. It true that it is third cranial nerve palsy. brain CTA and MRI are normal.

    Steroid therapy helped improve the situation.

    Kind regards!
