Abstract

A 62 year-old male patient presented with isolated oculomotor nerve palsy following a small infarction of the medial ventral midbrain, documented by magnetic resonance imaging. There was a 12-year history of hypertension, but no diabetes mellitus. Angiography revealed atherosclerosis of the paramedian mesencephalic arteries. Magnetic resonance imaging may be useful in patients with small brain stem infarctions.
