Razak AA, Arzoglou V. A frontal external ventricular drain causing a third cranial nerve palsy. Br J Neurosurg. 2016;1-2.
This 47-year-old gentleman presented with acute hydrocephalus secondary to a colloid cyst. Bilateral external ventricular drains (EVDs) were inserted. The patient developed a third nerve palsy during post-operative period - cranial imaging demonstrated the tip of an EVD in this vicinity. The palsy recovered completely on slight withdrawal of the EVD.
