Cranial nerve schwannomas usually arise from sensory nerve and the occurrence of schwannoma in a motor nerve is rare, especially in sporadic cases. Oculomotor nerve schwannomas (ONS) are rare and they are unique as they arise from motor nerve. ONS palsy may or may not be the presenting feature of oculomotor schwannoma. We present the case of a young male with ONS, presenting with oculomotor nerve palsy along with features of raised intracranial pressure. Oculomotor schwannoma is described in literature only as case reports, and oculomotor nerve is also a rare site for schwannoma as being a motor nerve. In this article, we describe a case of cisternal ONS with review of pertinent literature.
