Abstract

Two patients with retroorbital pain syndromes with or without paresis of cranial nerves developed weeks after ipsilateral headache resembling chronic paroxysmal hemicrania (CPH) but without autonomic features. These findings might support the hypothesis that CPH may be caused by a pathological process in the region of the cavernous sinus, as has been proposed for the Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (THS).
