A 76-year-old male presented with herpes zoster ophthalmicus in the right eye. Total ophthalmoplegia in the same eye developed three days later. Magnetic resonance imaging showed gadlinium enhancement in the right trigeminal nerve and dilated right cabvernous sinus. The total ophthalmoplegia appeared to have been induced by direct extension of inflammation in the cavernous sinus to the ipsilateral trigeminal nerve.
