Oculomotor nerve is 3rd cranial nerve and supplies the extra ocular muscles as well as constrictor pupillae and ciliary muscles which helps in constriction and accommodation of the eye. Apart from this it also supplies the levator palpebrae superioris which functions to elevate the upper eyelid. We herein present a case report of a 20 year male patient with head trauma developing isolated oculomotor nerve palsy with other cranial nerves being normal which is a rarity.
