Abstract

Two cases of third-nerve misdirection are presented. Elevation of the lid on the involved side was noted on adduction in gaze down and right, or down and left, but not with simple right, left or down gaze. This maneuver is helpful in detecting subtle cases of aberrant regeneration of the oculomotor nerve.
