ABSTRACT
Bilateral traumatic abducens nerve palsy is a rare condition. We report a case associated with Hangman's fracture without skull fracture. Seventeen cases of bilateral traumatic nerve palsy were found in the literature and only four cases had bilateral traumatic abducens nerve palsy associated with cervical spine fracture without skull fracture. In case of head and neck injury, the abducens nerve may be damaged at the point of fixation to the dura mater. The pathogenesis, the clinical conditions and the radiological findings are presented.
Key Words: Bilateral traumatic abducens nerve palsy; Cervical spine fracture
