Ophthalmoplegia following snake bite is a rare but not serious neurotoxic complication. However, symptoms like diplopia, blurred vision, and ocular discomfort can be emotionally devastating for a patient. We experienced one case f ophthalmoplegia following a snake bite. The patient complained of diplopia and ptosis that had developed several hours after the snake bite. The symptoms were completely resolved after pyridostigmine medication with antivenin treatment.
Key words: Ophthalmoplegia, Cholinesterase inhibitors, Snake bite
