Abstract

We report the case of a 22-year-old man after severe cranial trauma, who was noted to have conjugate eye deviation (CED) to the left. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan demonstrated a lesion in the left (ipsilateral) striatal-subthalamic region. The involvement of supranuclear fibres from the left frontal eye field (FEF) traveling to the right parapontine reticular formation (PPRF) could explain this clinical finding. Alternatively, involvement of deep brain nuclei, such as the striatum and the subthalamic nucleus, could be responsible for this phenomenon. This neurological presentation is unusual after severe cranial trauma.
