Abstract
Aims: To study the etiological pattern and prognosis of oculomotor nerve palsy in a medical college hospital in South India.
Methods: This study comprises 40 cases of oculomotor nerve palsy presenting to medical college hospital between March 2004 to September 2005. Details of various modes of presentation, aetiologies, pupillary involvement and recovery were documented and analysed.
Conclusion: Isolated oculomotor nerve palsy which is a predominant mode of presentation has a good recovery rate. We recommend that patients with oculomotor nerve palsy be carefully examined clinically in close collaboration with other specialists, especially where sophisticated complementary investigations are impossible.

Keywords: Oculomotor nerve palsy, Outcome, Partial, Management
