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.
