Abstract

Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (THS) is a painful ophthalmoplegia associated with granulomatous inflammation of the cavernous carotid artery and surrounding tissues which responds to corticosteroid. Other causes of painful ophthalmoplegia must be ruled out. We present a case of THS in which the course of the disease suggested this idiopathic condition which occurred after wide mastoidectomy. The patient was diabetic and had a huge pituitary gland adenoma. Partial petrosectomy, laboratory tests, and imaging studies were normal. We named this condition ‘Tolosa-Hunt-Like Syndrome’.
