Abstract To report an unusual case of cyclic oculomotor nerve paresis and spasms, which developed 5 years following brain radiotherapy for cerebellar medulloblastoma. Observational case report. The cyclic oculomotor nerve paresis and spasms resolved in our patient when treated with carbamazepine. However, because of severe photophobia and tearing, carbamazepine had to be discontinued leading to reappearance of the eye movement disorder. Cyclic oculomotor nerve paresis and spasms appear to be a delayed effect of radiotherapy and respond to carbamazepine therapy. It may be a rare form of ocular neuromyotonia.
