      ANATOMIC AND MRI CORRELATIONS OF OCULOMOTOR NERVE (Abstract): Oculomotor nerve supply most of the extrisic muscles of the eye. The intracranial course passes through two important regions: cavernous sinus, where is related to the internal carotid artery, but also with other cranial nerves such as trochlear nerve, abducens and ophtalmic branch of trigeminal nerve. At this level, the oculomotor nerve has important relations with cerebral dura mater – oculomotor cistern – relations used by neurosurgeons during cavernous sinus interventions. Another important relation is superior the superior orbital fissure through this nerve passes. At this level it has relations with trochlear and abducens nerves, but also with the branches of ophtalmic nerve. Palsy of oculomotor nerve can be of multiple cause, but the clinical aspect might explain also the cause, but also the level. Good knowledge of oculomotor intracranial and extracranial course might improve clinical diagnosis and treatment.
Key words: OCULOMOTOR NERVE, OCULOMOTOR CISTERN, OCULOMOTOR PALSY
