  • Isolated sixth cranial nerve aplasia visualized with fast imaging employing steady-state acquisition (FIESTA) MRI JOURNAL OF NEURO-OPHTHALMOLOGY Pilyugina, S. A., Fischbein, N. J., Liao, Y. J., McCulley, T. J. 2007; 27 (2): 127-128


    An otherwise healthy 12-month-old girl presented for evaluation of reduced abduction of the left eye detected at 6 months of age. The remainder of the examination was unremarkable. A special MRI sequence-fast imaging employing steady-state acquisition (FIESTA)-visualized the right but not the left sixth nerve cisternal segment. This is the first reported use of the MRI FIESTA sequence to diagnose aplasia of the sixth cranial nerve.
