Gradenigo syndrome (Gradenigo-Lannois Syndrome) was described in 1907 by Giuseppe Gradenigo when he reported a triad of symptoms characterised by periorbital unilateral pain due to trigeminal nerve involvement at Meckel's cave, diplopia due to involvement of abducens nerve in Dorello's canal and persistent otorrhoea of involved ear.
This triad was first described by Giuseppe Gradenigo and later called as Gradenigo's syndrome.
