Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

22 Scopus citations


A 54‐year‐old man developed a painful right third nerve palsy with signs of involvement of the first two divisions of the trigeminal nerve and, later, ipsilateral peripheral facial nerve weakness. A cavernous sinus venogram demonstrated narrowing of the third portion of the right ophthalmic vein and poor filling of the adjacent cavernous sinus. Resolution occurred with steroid therapy. The Tolosa‐Hunt syndrome may be a variant of a larger syndrome of recurrent multiple cranial polyneuropathies without identifiable cause.
