TORALES, Mario; OLIVERA, María Noel; OLAZARRI, Amelia  and  DUFRECHOU, Carlos. Painful ophthalmoplegia, a diagnostic challenge: on a case of Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome. Arch. Med Int [online]. 2012, vol.34, n.2, pp.60-63. ISSN 0250-3816.

The clinician faced with a painful ophthalmoplegia, must deal with diagnostic alternatives where semiotic discipline and imaging studies are of paramount importance to arrive at diagnosis. The Tolosa-Hunt syndrome is a likely etiology, where the use of diagnostic criteria, magnetic resonance study, and remission with corticosteroid therapy are essential to achieve diagnosis, knowing that the evolutionary track is very important to rule out various differential diagnoses.

Keywords : Painful ophthalmoplegia; Tolosa-Hunt syndrome.
