Abstract
29-year male presented with the complaints of diplopia for 4 years following a road traffic accident 5 years ago and drooping of left eye. A diagnosis of aberrant regeneration of third nerve was made. MRI revealed temporal lobe contusion. Aberrant regeneration may be a sign of underlying cavernous sinus tumour or aneurysm. Patient was stable at a follow up of 8 months and was advised surgery.
