Conclusions: Intracranial aneurysms presenting with 1 or more CN palsies show a high rate of clinical improvement after treatment with the PED. Clinical outcomes must be weighed against the risks and challenges faced with flow diverters. Further research is warranted for patients whose symptoms do not respond optimally to device placement.

Conclusions: Vitamin D is an important contributor and modifiable risk factor in CNS demyelinating disease. Further work will determine whether it is also neuroprotective and if such benefits will apply to other inflammatory and degenerative neurological diseases. (Source: Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology)

Conclusions: Strabismus in adults due to nonneurologic causes can result from recently described abnormalities of the orbital connective tissue pulley system. Advances in understanding of compartmental extraocular muscle anatomy and innervation can explain cyclovertical strabismus in partial nerve palsies. Recognition of the underlying pathogenesis of the strabismus can lead to improved treatments. (Source: Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology)

Abstract: A 32-year-old primigravid woman developed pre-eclampsia after delivery of twins along with left fifth, sixth, and seventh cranial neuropathies. She also had evidence of hepatic and renal involvement. Results of patient evaluation were otherwise unremarkable, and the palsies completely resolved over 3 months after treatment with valacyclovir and systemic corticosteroids.

We report central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) in a patient with Susac syndrome. The diagnosis of Susac syndrome was based on the results of funduscopy, brain magnetic resonance imaging, and audiometric testing. Our case demonstrates that possible choroidal involvement in Susac syndrome may lead to the development of CSC. (Source: Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology)

We report an unusual case of monocular elevation palsy and ipsilateral ptosis due to midbrain infarction involving the third nerve fascicle. In addition, we conducted a review of the literature of similar cases and produced an overlay image of the magnetic resonance scans from these reports. The overlapping regions primarily were located in the midbrain between the red nucleus and cerebral peduncle. This correlated with involvement of the lateral portion of the third nerve fascicle containing fibers to the superior rectus and levator palpebrae. (Source: Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology)
