We describe a 63-year-old Afro-Caribbean female who presented with complete ophthalmoplegia of the right eye. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mass in the cavernous sinus, which was pathologically confirmed as due to sarcoidosis. No clinical or laboratory evidence of sarcoidosis was found in any other organs. We believe this is the first reported case of an isolated cavernous sinus syndrome due to sarcoidosis and suggest that sarcoidosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of cavernous sinus syndromes even in the absence of systemic involvement of sarcoidosis.
