ABSTRACT: Hyaluronic acid filler injection is widely used for soft tissue augmentation. However, there could be disastrous complications by direct vascular embolization. We present a case of ischemic oculomotor nerve palsy and skin necrosis after hyaluronic acid filler injection on glabellar.Blepharoptosis, exotropia and diplopia developed suddenly right after the injection, and skin necrosis gradually occurred. Symptoms and signs of oculomotor nerve palsy were continuously improved through steroid therapy. Skin defects healed with minimal scars through intensive wound care.Percutaneous filler injection of periorbital areas should be performed carefully by experienced surgeons, and the possibility of embolization should be considered promptly if symptoms develop.
