Abstract We report the case of a young man who presented with bilateral third nerve palsies without pupillary involvement. Brain MRI demonstrated lesions in the region of the oculomotor nerves, and further evaluation led to the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. Our case documents a rare initial clinical presentation of this demyelinating disease.
