article description
Acute oculomotor nerve (CN III) palsies are commonly attributed to microvascular disease or compressive lesions and aneurysms, but may rarely be associated with ischemic large vessel disease. We report a case of an extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection heralded by CN III palsy with review of the relevant literature.
