Please tell me what does fourth nerve palsy lead to ?

Double vision

Open-uri20130416-14171-k82d6e
The fourth cranial nerve is the trochlear nerve. This coordinates the downward and inward rotation of the eye. Thus, a palsy leads to double vision particularly when looking downward. Patients have problems when going down stairs as this worsens the diploplia.

Is there any treatment for latent squint and fourth nerve palsy?

Rare

Nerve
Rare cases of migraine can cause double vision due to ophthalmoplegia. A virus can attack cranial nerves but usually facial (Bells). There is a benign familial 4th nerve defect but not intermittent. Other causes can be serious and need a detailed MRI exam.

Treatment for sixth nerve palsy?

Determine cause

Paralysis
The sixth nerve can be affected by many disorders of the nervous system. The cause must be determined. Many cases improve with time as long as the cause is not tumor or other mass. Surgery and glasses do not help.
