Description: How do you manage a new onset strabismus that walks into your office? What are the associated signs and symptoms to look for? What are your differentials? Do you call their primary care provider or an ambulance? This course will review urgent and emergent causes of 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 7th cranial nerve palsies as well as their differentials and management.
