We report a 55-year-old man who presented with a moderately severe community acquired pneumonia due to Chlamydia psittaci, probably acquired from budgerigars. One of his presenting symptoms was diplopia, secondary to bilateral 4th cranial nerve palsies, which persisted for some months. The literature on neurological complications of pneumonia is reviewed.
