What is a Cranial Nerve 4 Palsy? What is the treatment for a Cranial Nerve 4 Palsy?

 

A cranial nerve 4 palsy occurs when the fourth nerve is compromised. This compromise is typically caused by trauma, a vascular incidence (aneurism), demyelinating disease or an unknown cause. A patient will experience vertical double vision, difficulty reading and the feeling of everything being tilted. Treatment includes treating the underlying cause. A medical workup and MRI or CT scan are often ordered. Often prism glasses can help patients.
