GAMEIRO FILHO, Aluisio Rosa et al. Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2018, vol.77, n.5, pp.289-291. ISSN 0034-7280.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5935/0034-7280.20180063.

We present a case study of Tolosa-Hunt syndrome, a rare idiopathic disease, that is characterized by painful ophthalmoplegia of strong intensity, generally affecting the third cranial nerve, and, less frequently, the fourth or the sixth cranial nerves. Usually, there is no visual impairment. The treatment is based on corticosteroids with satisfactory results in most cases although recurrences can occur at intervals from months to years. In our case, the patient presented sudden pain periorbital associated with cranial nerves involvement, which have an excellent outcome after treatment with corticosteroids, with no relapses until today.

Palavras-chave : Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome; Ophtalmoplegia; Adrenal cortex hormones.
