Rare inflammation: This is a rare inflammation of the cavernous sinus or superior orbital fissure behind the eye. This causes multiple cranial nerve paralyses, including CN 3, 4, 5, and 6, all of which travel in this area. This leads to poor eye movement, double vision, significant pain behind and around the eye, sometimes fever and eye protrusion. Extensive work-up is required, and anti-inflammatory meds treat.
