Cover Page

Abstract


This article describes a case of superior orbital fissure syndrome caused by an internal carotid artery aneurysm in the cavernous sinus. Etiology, clinical presentations, and diagnostic methods are discussed. Possible regression of signs and symptoms after timely endovascular treatment of an internal carotid artery aneurysm in the cavernous sinus is reported.
