The nerve then passes the superior orbital fossa and through the tendinous ring. In the orbit, it divides into a superior portion (innervating the superior rectus and levator palpebrae superioris) and inferior portion (innervating the inferior rectus, inferior oblique, and medial rectus). The visceral fibers (originating in the Edinger-Westphal nucleus of the oculomotor nucleus complex) are also found in the inferior portion and terminate in the ciliary ganglion (see Fig. 2).

The syndrome of idiopathic hyperCKemia is a persistent CK elevation without a definable neuromuscular disease.
