Neurological examination
................... Cranial nerve examination

This request is not common possibly because of time constraint. However, some 
examiners may ask you to perform this examination just to see how fluent you are
with this technique. Theconditions where you may find multiple cranial nerve palsies
involving the eyes and extraocular structures are 

        • cerebello-pontine angle lesion
        • Wallenberg's syndorme
        • some brainstem sydrome such as Millar-Gubler

        • (sixth ane seventh nerve palsies)
Upper and lower limb examination

 Most of these cases have associated eye signs and are therefore likely to be either 
upper motor neurone lesions (with visual field defects) or cerebellar signs (with optic 
atrophy, central scotoma and ocular motility problems secondary to multiple sclerosis) 

        • hemiplegia
        • cerebellar signs
        • spastic paresis

        • wasting of the muscles of the hands (with Horner's syndrome)
