The authors determine all hyperbolic \(3\)manifolds \(M\) admitting two toroidal Dehn fillings at distance \(4\) or \(5\). They show that if \(M\) is a hyperbolic \(3\)manifold with a torus boundary component \(T_0\), and \(r,s\) are two slopes on \(T_0\) with \(\Delta(r,s) = 4\) or \(5\) such that \(M(r)\) and \(M(s)\) both contain an essential torus, then \(M\) is either one of \(14\) specific manifolds \(M_i\), or obtained from \(M_1, M_2, M_3\) or \(M_{14}\) by attaching a solid torus to \(\partial M_i  T_0\). All the manifolds \(M_i\) are hyperbolic, and the authors show that only the first three can be embedded into \(S^3\). As a consequence, this leads to a complete classification of all hyperbolic knots in \(S^3\) admitting two toroidal surgeries with distance at least \(4\).
