My son is 30 month old. When he was 11 month his pupil started to react less on light. This problem increased slowly during one and a half year. He also have a read miscoloration in the skin on the chek on the same side that looks like a frost bite but the surfice on the scin is normal. He is born with a slightly hanging eyelid.
Two month ago we suddenly discowered that the same eye couldn’t follow when he tried to look up. After a week the condision was pemanent and the movability to the left also got less. Now he can not look to left or upwards at all with his right eye.
He has had a lot of minor virus infektions in the upper airways and several ear infections until he had tubes in both ears placed in January this year.
The last weelk the eye also began to stand out a little.
Tests that has been done is:
Check by Neurologis and eye doctor: Shows third nerve palsy.
MRI: shows moist behind the eye.
Blood test: Hig level of segmentation.
24 hour Urine test; No signs of Neuroblastoma or anything else.

CT-Scan of affected area: OK

We are still waiting for some longterms result from Blod, Urine and Spinal fluid.
Other symptoms that can or cannot be associated is frequently diarrea and stomac aces. Low fever that comes and goes, Extremely active, some times a bad smellfrom his mouth without that any infcteion van be found.
He is on time or a bit a head with his development for the rest in all areas. Balance and fine motorics are exellent.
Doctors are really puzzeld and the third nerve palsy is escalating daily.
How should we search firther for a diagnose and maybe treatment?
