FORD, LM; MPANZA, MN  and  OUMA, JR. The conundrum of a resolving cavernous sinus syndrome. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2019, vol.57, n.2, pp.67-69. ISSN 2078-5151.

A middle-aged lady who presented with headaches and sudden onset of left cavernous sinus syndrome was found to have a left persistent primitive trigeminal artery (PPTA) on scans. The syndrome uniquely resolved spontaneously after a few days. Vascular variations in the region of the cavernous sinus should be actively sought in cross-sectional imaging performed for cavernous sinus syndrome.
