Anterior chamber reaction was seen in left eye on slit lamp examination and extorsion of left eye was seen on fundus examination. He was diagnosed with trochlear nerve palsy based on the limitation of infraduction in the adducted position in left eye, and hypertropia in left eye, which is, aggravated by adduction of left eye and head tilt to the left.
