Abstract

Recurrent painful ophthalmoplegic neuropathy is a form of cranial neuralgia and rare source of pediatric headache. We present 2 children who presented with headaches accompanied by visual symptoms including eye pain, blurry vision, and diplopia. MRI in both patients demonstrated enhancement of the cisternal segment of the oculomotor nerve in the affected side, correlating with the observed symptoms.
