Cavernous sinus syndrome (CSS) is a rare condition that presents with clinical signs and symptoms due to the involvement of the cranial nerves (CN) III, IV, VI, V1, and V2. Various causes such as vascular, inflammatory, infectious, or neoplastic pathologies are involved in the etiology. CSS is rarely the first sign of cancer.
