Cavernous sinus syndrome associated with metastatic colorectal cancer and perineural spread along the trigeminal nerve We report the case of a patient with cavernous sinus syndrome associated with biopsy-confirmed metastasis from colorectal cancer.A patient known for laryngeal carcinoma and metastatic colorectal carcinoma presented with symptoms of left trigeminal neuralgia and progressive, near-complete ophthalmoplegia. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a mass in the left cavernous (...) sinus, extending into Meckel's cave with perineural spread along the mandibular branch of the left trigeminal nerve. A transsphenoidal biopsy was performed and demonstrated metastatic colon adenocarcinoma. We review the existing literature on colorectal cancer associated cavernous sinus syndrome.Cavernous sinus metastasis from colorectal cancer is exceedingly rare.

Cavernous Carotid Artery Pseudoaneurysm Following a Radical Cavernous Sinus Resection Iatrogenic cavernous carotid pseudoaneurysms are a special group among other intracranial aneurysms. They can occur during the dissection phase of the surgery if the tumor encases a vessel. Complications of their rupture as hemorrhage or stroke are life threatening. Early recognition and treatment is mandatory to avoid catastrophic sequelae. We present the successful diagnosis and endovascular treatment (...) of a postoperative cavernous carotid pseudoaneurysm following radical cavernous sinus resection.
