abstract

  • Non-traumatic sixth nerve palsy in the 20-50 years old group is unusual and a detailed history is often needed to identify serious and potentially reversible causes. We present a case of sixth sense nerve palsy in a young female with eczema for which she was treated with low-dose cyclosporin. We review the indications for and ocular side effects of cyclosporin, a drug with which most ophthalmologists will be unfamiliar.
