GOKSU, E.; AKYUZ, M.; GURKANLAR, D. y TUNCER, R.. Bilateral abducens nerve palsy following ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm: report of 2 cases. Neurocirugía [online]. 2007, vol.18, n.5, pp.420-422. ISSN 1130-1473.
Isolated abducens nerve palsies associated with intracranial aneurysms have rarely been reported. Their association with anterior communicating artery (ACoA) is even rarer. Intracisternal clot formation and elevated intracranial pressure has been proposed to be the responsible mechanisms. Herewith, we report two cases of bilateral abducens palsies following ruptured ACoA aneurysms and speculated the possible mechanisms. Opening of Liliequist's membrane provides clinical improvement due to CSF release.
