Pediatr Neurol. 1989 Nov-Dec;5(6):377-80. doi: 10.1016/0887-8994(89)90053-2.


Gradenigo syndrome is an uncommonly observed neurologic complex consisting of cranial nerve VI palsy associated with the loss of the sensory component of cranial nerve V. We report a patient whose presentation with Gradenigo syndrome led to the unexpected diagnosis of T-cell lymphoma and briefly discuss Gradenigo syndrome and intracranial lymphomas.
