Garcin's syndrome--a case report.

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Garcin's syndrome in its complete form is very rare, and hence, this case is reported.

CASE DESCRIPTION

A 45-year-old patient presented to us with proptosis of the right eye and progressive weakness of all cranial nerves on the right side without associated features of raised intracranial pressure or long tract dysfunction. He had a bulge in the right buccolabial fold, from which fine needle aspiration cytology was done. Cytology report came as a poorly differentiated carcinoma.

CONCLUSIONS

Garcin's syndrome is a very rare neurosurgical entity. The course of the condition depends on the nature of underlying pathology.
