Abstract

When a patient complains with various symptomatology, a “syndrome” like picture often runs through the mind. Here, is one such female patient who presented with an unusual and interesting case with multiple cranial nerve involvement in the areas of ear, nose and throat with its symptomatology ranging from tinnitus to trismus along with facial numbness to paranasal sinus tenderness. When all these symptoms amalgamate, the mind wanders and raises queries to plenty of differentials. Hence, approach to one such diagnosis is demanding.
