Abstract: Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (THS) is a rare benign disease caused by granulomatous inflammation in the craniofacial region. It is mostly idiopathic and generally presents with painful ophthalmoplegia, ipsilateral oculomotor paresis, and steroid responsiveness. There are few reports of THS after sinus surgery. Here, we present a case of THS in an adult immunocompetent patient with severe ophthalmic pain and diplopia after frontal balloon sinuplasty. The patient was initially misdiagnosed as having a surgical complication. The patient was treated with massive corticosteroid pulse therapy, and the symptoms resolved dramatically. There were no complications or recurrence in the 7-month follow-up period.
