Third Nerve Palsy

Typically presents with a ptosis and divergent strabismus (exotropia). There is loss of the superior rectus, medial rectus, inferior rectus and inferior oblique on the affected side. The functioning lateral rectus muscle (supplied by the sixth nerve) and superior oblique muscle (innovated by the fourth nerve) result in the eye being positioned down and out.
