Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (THS) is a painful ophthalmoplegia, characterized by cryptogenic granulomatous inflammation of the cavernous sinus and/or superior orbital fissure. Glucocorticoid treatment is used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. According to the Headache classification subcommittee of international headache society criteria, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or biopsy is necessary for demonstration of the granulomatous inflammation. Here, we present two cases of THS with clinical and MRI findings.
