Abstract: 

We describe a case of orbital apex syndrome due to Perineural Spread (PNS) of forehead Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC). This type of tumor spread occurs rarely and has a highly aggressive nature. Therefore, the high level of suspicion for perineural invasion is required and early diagnosis increases the likelihood of success in treatment.
