Abstract
Painful ophthalmoplegia is not common and may be due to variety of causes, of which distant metastsis of malignant lymphoma is rare. This is a case of painful ophthalmoplegia who has looked like Tolosa-Hunt syndrome at first showing normal CSF findings, increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate and some response to steroid. About 2 months later, however, pelvic malignant lymphoma (diffuse undifferentiated according to Rappaport classification) was found, followed by lymphomatous meningitis. The symptoms of pain and ophthalmoplegia were markedly improved after systemic and intrathecal chemotherapy and radiotherapy of whole brain for the metastatic malignant lymphoma.
