Abstract

Rare case of bilateral internuclear ophthalmoplegia (INO) following head injury in 25-year-old male is being reported. The site of the lesion in the mid-brain as detected in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) correlates well with the clinical presentation. The patient recovered on conservative treatment with a course of dexamethasone (for brainstem contusion).
