Title

Combined VIth and VIIth nerve palsy: Consider idiopathic intracranial hypertension!

Authors
Published in European Journal of Paediatric Neurology. 2016, vol. 20, no. 2, p. 336-338
Abstract Background: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is a rare condition in children. VIth nerve palsy is the most common cranial nerve deficit related to that condition. Other cranial nerve dysfunctions have also been described but remain rare in paediatric daily practice. Case presentation: We here report the case of a 13-year-old girl who presented with VIth and contralateral VIIth nerve palsy due to IIH. Conclusion: Although rarely encountered, paediatricians should be familiar with the possible association of VIth and contralateral VIIth nerve palsy in children suffering from IIH. Moreover, other cranial nerve deficits may also be affected.
