Oculomotor palsy. Face of a 36- year-old woman with oculomotor nerve palsy after surgery to treat a subarachnoid haemorrhage. A berry aneurysm, a common localised dilation of an intercranial artery, caused the subarachnoid haemorrhage. This palsy is a dysfunction of the oculomotor nerve, which controls the movement of the eyes. It leads to an inability to move the eye, double vision, a fixed and non-reactive pupil and eyelid drooping (ptosis, seen here, right eye). Ptosis can be corrected by surgery.
