BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Neuromuscular choristomas (NMCs) are rare benign tumors of the peripheral nerves. Although histopathological characteristics of this unusual lesion have been recognized, in this regard, neuroimaging findings have not been well described previously. We report the first intraconally located NMC affecting the oculomotor nerve, with histopathological and radiological characteristics.
