Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 71-year-old man suffered from left-side throbbing headache over the region of the fifth cranial nerve first division, followed by left ptosis and ophthalmoplegia. Under tentative diagnosis of Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (THS), oral prednisolone 60 mg was given daily. His headache and ophthalmoplegia dramatically improved within 24 hours. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and computed tomography (CT) of the head were negative. However, irregularity in the siphon of the left internal carotid artery was disclosed by angiography. This case illustrates that angiography may be useful in diagnosing THS, when CT and MR imaging are negative.
