Abstract

The paper presents a description of a 75-year-old female patient with arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus 2, connective tissue disease admitted to the Department of Cardiology due to unstable angina. Immediately after coronary angiography, the patient developed nystagmus, and double vision of the left eye — paralysis of the lower branch of the left oculomotor nerve was diagnosed. Despite the commonness of coronary angiography procedures performed in the world, eye complications are rarely reported.
