The term superior orbital fissure syndrome (SOFS) or Rochon-Duvigneaud syndrome is applied to lesions located immediately anterior to the orbital apex, associated with impaired function of the cranial nerves (III, IV, V, and VI) that enter the orbit through the SOF.[7],[8],[9] An orbital apex syndrome (OAS) is a syndrome involving the same cranial nerves as in SOFS, but there is associated optic nerve dysfunction.[8],[9]
