Abstract

Two other otolaryngologic causes of diplopia are common knowledge to most of us. Another cause, acute maxillary sinusitis is presented
Maxillary sinusitis can cause spontaneous ophthalmoplegia by the spread of bacterial toxin through several probable preformed pathways
a. orbital floor which is incomplete at its central portion and is transversed by a groove, the inferior orbital fissure
b. clear cut connection between the inferior and superior orbital fissure which contains the nerve supply to the extraocular muscles
c. through the inferior opthalmic vein which passes through the inferior orbital fissure.(Author)
