The evaluation and management of the neurologically isolated third nerve palsy continues to evolve. The major concern for the clinician confronted with a patient with a third nerve palsy has been the exclusion of an intracranial aneurysm. The evolution of new imaging techniques, such as computed tomography angiography and magnetic resonance angiography, have provided new imaging options for clinicians. This article reviews the pertinent recent literature on the use of these imaging studies in evaluating the patient with a third nerve palsy.
