Idiopathic intracranial hypertension often presents with cranial nerve VI paresis. Infrequently, other cranial nerve dysfunction may occur. We report a case of idiopathic intracranial hypertension that presented with bilateral cranial nerve III paresis. Review of the literature suggests that severe elevation of intracranial pressure may predispose patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension to cranial nerve III dysfunction.
