PAREJA-ESTEBAN, J. et al. Hypertrophic pachymeningitis and ophthalmological disturbances: description of two case reports. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.8, pp.497-500. ISSN 0365-6691.
Case reports: We report two cases of hypertrophic pachymeningitis with ophthalmological disturbances. One patient suffered from hypertrophic pachymeningitis supposedly secondary to a focal neurosarcoidosis and had a sixth nerve paresis. The second patient suffered from a diffuse idiopathic hypertrophic chronic pachymeningitis (a rare form) and displayed disturbances in vision and ocular motility. Discussion: Hypertrophic pachymeningitis is a condition with a wide spectrum of etiologies and clinical manifestations, and needs to be considered as the cause in patients with alterations in ocular motility.
