Bell Palsy: A syndrome characterized by the acute onset of unilateral FACIAL PARALYSIS which progresses over a 2-5 day period. Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with HERPESVIRUS 1, HUMAN infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376)Facial Paralysis: Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.Facial Nerve: The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and SALIVARY GLANDS, and convey afferent information for TASTE from the anterior two-thirds of the TONGUE and for TOUCH from the EXTERNAL EAR.Cerebral Palsy: A heterogeneous group of nonprogressive motor disorders caused by chronic brain injuries that originate in the prenatal period, perinatal period, or first few years of life. The four major subtypes are spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed cerebral palsy, with spastic forms being the most common. The motor disorder may range from difficulties with fine motor control to severe spasticity (see MUSCLE SPASTICITY) in all limbs. Spastic diplegia (Little disease) is the most common subtype, and is characterized by spasticity that is more prominent in the legs than in the arms. Pathologically, this condition may be associated with LEUKOMALACIA, PERIVENTRICULAR. (From Dev Med Child Neurol 1998 Aug;40(8):520-7)Facial Nerve Diseases: Diseases of the facial nerve or nuclei. Pontine disorders may affect the facial nuclei or nerve fascicle. The nerve may be involved intracranially, along its course through the petrous portion of the temporal bone, or along its extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include facial muscle weakness, loss of taste from the anterior tongue, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation.Herpes Zoster Oticus: A syndrome characterized by facial palsy in association with a herpetic eruption of the external auditory meatus. This may occasionally be associated with tinnitus, vertigo, deafness, severe otalgia, and inflammation of the pinna. The condition is caused by reactivation of a latent HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN infection which causes inflammation of the facial and vestibular nerves, and may occasionally involve additional cranial nerves. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p757)Lyme Neuroborreliosis: Nervous system infections caused by tick-borne spirochetes of the BORRELIA BURGDORFERI GROUP. The disease may affect elements of the central or peripheral nervous system in isolation or in combination. Common clinical manifestations include a lymphocytic meningitis, cranial neuropathy (most often a facial neuropathy), POLYRADICULOPATHY, and a mild loss of memory and other cognitive functions. Less often more extensive inflammation involving the central nervous system (encephalomyelitis) may occur. In the peripheral nervous system, B. burgdorferi infection is associated with mononeuritis multiplex and polyradiculoneuritis. (From J Neurol Sci 1998 Jan 8;153(2):182-91)RomeMoxibustion: The burning of a small, thimble sized, smoldering plug of dried leaves on the SKIN at an ACUPUNCTURE point. Usually the plugs contain leaves of MUGWORT or moxa.Acupuncture Therapy: Treatment of disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians. The placement varies with the disease being treated. It is sometimes used in conjunction with heat, moxibustion, acupressure, or electric stimulation.Ageusia: Complete or severe loss of the subjective sense of taste, frequently accompanied by OLFACTION DISORDERS.Acyclovir: A GUANOSINE analog that acts as an antimetabolite. Viruses are especially susceptible. Used especially against herpes.Myoclonic Cerebellar Dyssynergia: A condition marked by progressive CEREBELLAR ATAXIA combined with MYOCLONUS usually presenting in the third decade of life or later. Additional clinical features may include generalized and focal SEIZURES, spasticity, and DYSKINESIAS. Autosomal recessive and autosomal dominant patterns of inheritance have been reported. Pathologically, the dentate nucleus and brachium conjunctivum of the CEREBELLUM are atrophic, with variable involvement of the spinal cord, cerebellar cortex, and basal ganglia.

High prevalence of varicella-zoster virus reactivation in herpes simplex virus-seronegative patients with acute peripheral facial palsy. (1/73)

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) and herpes simplex virus (HSV) are considered to be the major causes of acute peripheral facial palsy (APFP). One hundred and forty-two patients with APFP were analyzed by serological assays and polymerase chain reaction analysis. Ramsay Hunt syndrome was diagnosed in 21 patients. Of the remaining 121 patients clinically diagnosed with Bell's palsy, VZV reactivation without zoster (zoster sine herpete) was detected in 35 patients (29%). The prevalence of antibodies to HSV among patients with Bell's palsy was significantly higher than the prevalence among those with VZV reactivation (Ramsay Hunt syndrome or zoster sine herpete). In contrast, a high incidence (88%) of VZV reactivation among HSV-seronegative patients with APFP was observed. Our data indicate that VZV is one of the major etiologic agents of clinically diagnosed Bell's palsy and that VZV reactivation causes APFP in most patients who lack antibodies to HSV.  (+info)

Detection of human herpesvirus 6 and varicella-zoster virus in tear fluid of patients with Bell's palsy by PCR. (2/73)

Human herpesvirus 6 DNA was detected by PCR in the tear fluid of 7 (35%) of 20 patients with Bell's palsy and of 1 (5%) of 20 healthy controls. Varicella-zoster virus was detected by PCR in the tear fluid of 2 of 20 Bell's palsy patients but in none of the tear fluids from 20 healthy controls. These findings suggest an association between human herpesviruses and Bell's palsy.  (+info)

Ramsay Hunt syndrome. (3/73)

The strict definition of the Ramsay Hunt syndrome is peripheral facial nerve palsy accompanied by an erythematous vesicular rash on the ear (zoster oticus) or in the mouth. J Ramsay Hunt, who described various clinical presentations of facial paralysis and rash, also recognised other frequent symptoms and signs such as tinnitus, hearing loss, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and nystagmus. He explained these eighth nerve features by the close proximity of the geniculate ganglion to the vestibulocochlear nerve within the bony facial canal. Hunt's analysis of clinical variations of the syndrome now bearing his name led to his recognition of the general somatic sensory function of the facial nerve and his defining of the geniculate zone of the ear. It is now known that varicella zoster virus (VZV) causes Ramsay Hunt syndrome. Compared with Bell's palsy (facial paralysis without rash), patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome often have more severe paralysis at onset and are less likely to recover completely. Studies suggest that treatment with prednisone and acyclovir may improve outcome, although a prospective randomised treatment trial remains to be undertaken. In the only prospective study of patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, 14% developed vesicles after the onset of facial weakness. Thus, Ramsay Hunt syndrome may initially be indistinguishable from Bell's palsy. Further, Bell's palsy is significantly associated with herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection. In the light of the known safety and effectiveness of antiviral drugs against VZV or HSV, consideration should be given to early treatment of all patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome or Bell's palsy with a 7-10 day course of famciclovir (500 mg, three times daily) or acyclovir (800 mg, five times daily), as well as oral prednisone (60 mg daily for 3-5 days). Finally, some patients develop peripheral facial paralysis without ear or mouth rash, associated with either a fourfold rise in antibody to VZV or the presence of VZV DNA in auricular skin, blood mononuclear cells, middle ear fluid, or saliva. This indicates that a proportion of patients with "Bell's palsy" have Ramsay Hunt syndrome zoster sine herpete. Treatment of these patients with acyclovir and prednisone within 7 days of onset has been shown to improve the outcome of recovery from facial palsy.  (+info)

Symptomatic unruptured capillary telangiectasia of the brain stem: report of three cases and review of the literature. (4/73)

Three young patients with transient or intermittent focal neurological signs suggesting brain stem involvement are described, in whom high field MRI showed focal areas of hyperintensity in T2 weighted spin echo images, hypointensity in T2* weighted gradient echo images, and enhancement in postcontrast T1 weighted images consistent with unruptured capillary telangiectasia of the brain stem. The first patient was a 28 year old woman who complained of recurrent left ear tinnitus, exacerbated during the menstrual period; MRI demonstrated that the vascular anomaly involved the left acoustic pathway. The second patient was a 30 year old woman who had three episodes of paroxysmal left lip movement 4 weeks after child delivery; MRI showed capillary telangiectasia in the right corticonuclear pathway. The third patient, a 36 year old man, had a transient right Bell's palsy; MRI disclosed two circumscribed areas consistent with capillary telangiectasia in the left corticospinal tract and medial longitudinal fasciculus. Steroid receptors in the telangiectatic vessels walls might account for the recurrent and transient course seen in our two female patients. Awareness of the MRI features of capillary telangiectasia may help in defining the real incidence, clinical correlation, and the risk of haemorrhagic complications of these vascular malformations.  (+info)

Weather conditions and Bell's palsy: five-year study and review of the literature. (5/73)

BACKGROUND: Climatic or meteorological condition changes have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Bell's palsy (BP). We evaluate the influence of meteorological parameters, such as temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, and their variation and covariation on the incidence of BP and present a review of the literature on the effect of meteorological conditions on facial nerve function. METHODS: A total of 171 cases of BP admitted to our Department over a five-year period were studied. The meteorological database included daily values of 13 distinct parameters recorded at the meteorological station of the University of Ioannina during this period. A relationship between each meteorological variable and the incidence of BP was investigated by applying (Chi2) test on data from 13 contingency tables. In addition, the influence of different weather types on the incidence of BP was also investigated. For this purpose Cluster Analysis was used to create eight clusters (weather types) for the Ioannina prefecture and (Chi2) test was applied on the contingency tables consisting of the days of BP cases for each cluster. RESULTS: No significant correlation was found either between BP and each distinct meteorological parameter or between BP and any specific weather. CONCLUSIONS: Meteorological conditions, such as those dominating in the Northwestern Greece, and/or their changes have little effect on the incidence of BP. Multicenter studies taking into account atmospheric pollution, and climatic differences between countries, are necessary to scrutinize the environmental effects on facial nerve function.  (+info)

Botulinum toxin treatment for hyperlacrimation secondary to aberrant regenerated seventh nerve palsy or salivary gland transplantation. (6/73)

AIM: To investigate the potential of botulinum toxin A for treating hyperlacrimation. METHODS: Three patients with unilateral symptoms of hyperlacrimation (diagnosed as "crocodile tearing") and one patient with a submandibular salivary gland transplant (SMGT) were studied. Tear production was quantified in the resting and stimulated (chewing or following exercise) state, using Schirmer's test and tear clearance. Lacrimal scintigraphy was used to assess outflow. Intraglandular injections (for patients with "crocodile tears") or periglandular injections (for the SMGT patient) of Dysport were administered in divided doses. RESULTS: Two of the three eyes with reported gustatory lacrimation had a higher Schirmer test result than their fellow eye following gustatory stimulation. Scintigraphy, with and without stimulation, confirmed a patent drainage system in these patients. The other patient demonstrated a functional obstruction to tear flow. After treatment patients with confirmed gustatory lacrimation and the SMGT patient had a marked reduction in tearing at 2 weeks. This effect lasted 3-4 months. There was no demonstrable improvement in the patient with epiphora secondary to functional obstruction. Two patients who had received intraglandular injections developed a ptosis, which resolved spontaneously. CONCLUSIONS: This study illustrates that gustatory lacrimation is a difficult diagnosis. In post-facial nerve palsy a functional element must always be considered. However, in confirmed hyperlacrimation botulinum toxin treatment is effective but side effects may occur.  (+info)

Association between Bell's palsy in pregnancy and pre-eclampsia. (7/73)

BACKGROUND: Previous published case series have suggested an association between the onset of Bell's palsy in pregnancy and the risk of pre-eclampsia and gestational hypertension. AIM: To evaluate the period of onset of Bell's palsy in pregnancy and the associated risk of adverse maternal and perinatal events, including the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. STUDY DESIGN: Case series study of consecutive female patients. METHODS: Women presenting with Bell's palsy during pregnancy or the puerperium were identified by a hospital record review at five Canadian centres over 11 years. Information was abstracted about each woman's medical and obstetrical history, period of onset of Bell's palsy, and associated maternal complications, including pre-eclampsia and gestational hypertension as well as preterm delivery and low infant birth weight (<2500 g). These rates were compared to those previously described for the province of Ontario or for Canada. RESULTS: Forty-one patients were identified. Mean onset of Bell's palsy was 35.4 weeks gestation (SD 3.9). Nine (22.0%, 95%CI 10.8-35.7) were also diagnosed with pre-eclampsia and three (7.3%, 95%CI 1.4-17.1) with gestational hypertension, together (29.3%, 95%CI 16.5-43.9) representing nearly a five-fold increase over the expected provincial/national average. There were three twin births. The observed rates of Caesarean (43.6%) and preterm (25.6%) delivery, as well as low infant birth weight (22.7%), were also higher than expected, although the rate of congenital anomalies (4.5%) was not. CONCLUSIONS: The onset of Bell's palsy during pregnancy or the puerperium is probably associated with the development of the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Pregnant women who develop Bell's palsy should be closely monitored for hypertension or pre-eclampsia, and managed accordingly.  (+info)

Effects of climate, latitude, and season on the incidence of Bell's palsy in the US Armed Forces, October 1997 to September 1999. (8/73)

Bell's palsy is a relatively common disease characterized by the sudden onset of unilateral facial paralysis. Using a centralized surveillance system that contains demographic, military assignment, and medical encounter data of US military service members, the authors estimated rates, trends, and demographic correlates of risk of Bell's palsy during a 2-year period. Poisson regression was used to estimate the independent effects of climate, season, and latitude. From October 1997 to September 1999, there were 1,181 incident cases of Bell's palsy among US service members. The crude incidence rate was 42.77 per 100,000 person-years. Incidence rates increased with age and were higher among females, Blacks, Hispanics, married persons, and enlisted service members. Both climate (adjusted rate ratio for arid vs. nonarid climate = 1.34) and season (adjusted rate ratio for cold vs. warm months = 1.31) were independent predictors of risk of Bell's palsy. Latitude was not a statistically significant predictor when demographic, climate, and season effects were taken into account. The results are consistent with hypotheses regarding viral etiologies (e.g., reactivation of herpes simplex) of Bell's palsy.  (+info)

Additional risk factors are: stress, hypertension, last weeks of pregnancy. Some sources also name diabetes as a risk factor.. Essentially, Bells palsy is a diagnosis of exclusion. If none of the known causes can be confirmed, then the facial palsy is considered idiopathic, i.e. "from unclear or undetermined causes". In other words, if the causes of your facial palsy cannot be determined and confirmed, the diagnosis will be "Bells palsy"..

According to the Mayo Clinic website, Bells palsy occurs when the nerves of your facial muscles become inflamed, and may occur as a result of a viral infection. An average of 30,000 to 40,000 people a year are affected by the disease. Besides the temporary facial paralysis, other symptoms include jaw pain, sensitivity to sound, impaired taste, headaches and tear or saliva changes. [...] while during the press conference, Mulkey often covered her eyes with her hand as she looked out to see the questioner, the bright lights on the court arent whats truly bothering her.
Bells palsy is the most common type of facial nerve paralysis. In Bells palsy, the affected nerve becomes inflamed due to injury or damage. Most researchers think that it is caused by infections like the common cold virus or meningitis. Symptoms of Bells palsy range from mild facial weakness to total paralysis of the affected area. Some people refer to the condition as
Migraine headache may double the risk of Bells palsy, a nervous system condition that causes facial paralysis, according to a new study published online this month in the journal Neurology®. The authors describe their work as the first to suggest that the 2 conditions may share a common underlying link. The study found the elevated risk for Bells palsy was present even after researchers accounted for other factors that could contribute to the condition, such as sex, high blood pressure, and diabetes.. Bells palsy affects between 11 and 40 people per 100,000 each year; most recover completely. Headaches are the most common disorder of the nervous system and affect about 12% of the US population. Some possible shared causes for the 2 diseases could be infection, inflammation, or heart and vascular problems. Identification of a common link could facilitate the development of better treatments for both conditions.. Read more about the study findings here.. Posted on December 22, 2014. ...
Most people who have Bells palsy recover completely, without treatment, in 1 to 2 months.footnote 1 This is especially true for people who can still partly move their facial muscles. But a small number of people may have permanent muscle weakness or other problems on the affected side of the face. Treatment with corticosteroid medicines (such as prednisone) can make it more likely that you will regain all facial movement. They work best if they are taken soon after symptoms start (within 3 days). Sometimes antiviral medicines (such as acyclovir) may be added to corticosteroid medicines to treat Bells palsy. But evidence for using antiviral medicines is weak. They may help in some cases, but in general they do not affect recovery.footnote 2. Some people may not be able to take corticosteroid medicines because of other health problems. Its important to remember that most people with Bells palsy recover completely without any treatment. ...

A careful general neurological exam is critical to the diagnosis of Bells palsy and exclusion of other diagnoses. Much of the examination occurs as one takes a history from the patient. One can easily see facial movements during conversation and note lid closure during blinking. Other cranial nerve disorders are usually apparent, as is hemiparesis.. Beyond a careful examination of motor and sensory function, reflexes and the general physical exam, a deliberate examination of the cranial nerves is of paramount importance. One needs to recognize the nature of a peripheral seventh nerve palsy, which will affect both the upper and lower face. This distinguishes a Bells palsy from a central process which primarily affects the lower face.. A thorough head and neck exam is also important. Evidence of cellulitis, otitis, lymphadenopathy, and vesicles (zoster) all may be clues to an alternate etiology.. Likewise, a general physical examination may disclose evidence of systemic disease manifesting in an ...

Steroids: The role in treatment of Bells palsy in children is unclear, however streroids appear to benefit adults, particularly if given within 72 hours of onset and if complete palsy present. Prednisolone (1mg/kg/day PO daily for 10 days) may be considered for Bells palsy presenting within 72 hours of onset. Antivirals: aciclovir may only be considered if vesicular rash present.. ...
Keep a couple of things in mind as you exercise with Bells Palsy … You need to be patient and work the muscles gently. The idea is not only to regain motion but for the motion to be balanced with the good side. Dont force things to the point that the two sides pull against each other. If you see a motion pulling other muscles that shouldnt be moving, back off a little, and freeze it at that point, and relax the muscles that shouldnt be moving. Keep your eyes on those eager-beaver muscles in the cheek area as you work your eye or mouth. And check the muscle that runs down your neck to make sure it doesnt "pop out". Keep the muscle movements appropriately isolated. Pay attention to your face as you exercise - focus on watching and feeling what the good side is doing, and then mentally visualize it on the Bells palsy side and try to recreate it in tiny increments. Use a mirror - the feeling of motion you get while exercising can be very deceptive, so this is important. The mirror will also ...

How to quickly recover from Bells palsy, and heal nerve damage. The Bells palsy virus is closely related to both herpes and shingles.
We will discuss Bells palsy causes, mechanisms of nerve damage, possibility for a recovery and how it occurs. Participation is free.
Bells palsy affects about one in 60 persons and has an annual incidence of around 20 per 100,000 persons. Overall, the condition is most common in persons 15 to 45 years of age, but the incidence is particularly high in pregnant women (45 per 100,000). Holland and Weiner outlined recent developments concerning the management of Bells palsy.. Although still somewhat controversial, evidence is accumulating that reactivated herpes viruses (simplex type 1 or zoster) in cranial nerve ganglia are the most common cause of Bells palsy. Conditions caused by the herpes zoster virus may be more severe than those caused by herpes simplex virus type 1.. Patients usually are alarmed by the sudden onset of Bells palsy symptoms, which include facial weakness accompanied by change in taste sensation, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation. Some patients report ear pain or fullness before the paralysis. Severe pain is more typical of herpes zoster infections. Examination of a patient with Bells palsy shows ...

Im sorry to hear youve had Bells palsy! I think you made the right decision to take the meds though, Im sure your doc wouldnt advise you to do anything that would harm your baby. My hubby has had several attacks of Bells since he was about 12, but only once in the time Ive known him (which is 10 years). I think he had steroids for it, but he also was advised to exercise his face as much a possible, practising smiling and pursing his lips as if he was going to whistle. This is to stimulate the nerve regrowth I think. He found these quite hard and frustrating, but his face has improved a lot and no-one would know hed had Bells now. It did take him a few months to get back to normal, and he still notices it when his face gets cold or if hes very tired, but really its not a problem any more and he looks totally normal. For him I think the main problem was the psychological aspect - he did feel really miserable when his face wouldnt move ...

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) November 17, 2011 -- On Saturday, November 12, The Facial Paralysis & Bells Palsy Foundation held a special support group
Bells palsy was named after a Scottish doctor, Sir Charles Bell, who studied the two facial nerves that direct how the face moves. You have one facial nerve for each side of your face. These nerves send messages from the brain to the face. Through these messages, the facial nerves control the muscles of your face, forehead, and neck.. Facial nerves control the expressions you make - like raising your eyebrows, squeezing your eyes shut, or smiling. Each facial nerve starts in the brain, goes through the skull in a narrow tube of bone, and exits the skull behind the ear. From there, it splits into smaller branches of nerves that attach to the muscles of the face, neck, and ear. Other small nerve branches run to the glands that make saliva, the glands that make tears, and the front of the tongue.. Remember that narrow tube of bone that holds the facial nerve? When the facial nerve is infected or damaged, it swells up and presses against the inside of that bony tube. The nerve gets squashed, and it ...
It is thought that as a result of inflammation of the facial nerve, pressure is produced on the nerve where it exits the skull within its bony canal, blocking the transmission of neural signals or damaging the nerve. Patients with facial palsy for which an underlying cause can be found are not considered to have Bells palsy per se. Possible causes include tumor, meningitis, stroke, diabetes mellitus, head trauma and inflammatory diseases of the cranial nerves (sarcoidosis, brucellosis, etc.). In these conditions, the neurologic findings are rarely restricted to the facial nerve. Babies can be born with facial palsy. In a few cases, bilateral facial palsy has been associated with acute HIV infection. Continue reading →. ...

No studies have demonstrated a benefit in commencing steroids in those with incomplete facial paralysis as they have a good prognosis. In addition, no studies have demonstrated an improvement in the time to recovery in any patients with Bells palsy. If any benefit has been demonstrated, then it is in those with a complete facial paralysis with steroids being started early. There are significant criticisms with all the studies conducted so far, and a large prospective randomised controlled trial demonstrating a clear benefit has yet to be conducted ...
Proper care of eye during this period is of utmost importance to prevent permanent consequences such as corneal ulceration and scarring leading to loss of vision," said Anurag Wahi, ophthalmologist at Sharp Sight Group of Eye Hospital.. Bells palsy is a condition that causes temporary weakness or paralysis of the muscles in one side of the face, and is most common cause of facial paralysis. Noting there are several symptoms that people ignore but later discover to be Bells Palsy, Wahi said that these can also include irritation in the eyes due to dryness or drooping of part of the face.. "Difficulty in facial expression, alteration in sense of taste and pain in front or behind the ear in some cases are also symptoms that gives indications that it might be Bells Palsy," said ophthalmologist Samir Sud. "The most common effect of Bells palsy on eye is that tje patient is unable to blink on the affected side and close the eyelids completely. Sometimes lower eyelid may turn outwards," he ...

Bells palsy is an acute, unilateral, infranuclear facial palsy with no specific sex predilection. The disease has been reported in middle aged individuals residing at plains rather than at high altitude location. The disease is of unclear etiology and reactivation of the herpes simplex virus has been implicated by many researchers [1]. There is inflammation of the nerve leading to edema and focal ischemia of the facial nerve. The risk factors include obesity, diabetes, pregnancy and hypertension. The risk factors in our patient could be hypoxia induced neural edema coupled with vitamin D deficiency. Intracranial calcification also could have contributed for the same, but the neuroimaging did not reveal any evidence of calcification near the intracranial facial nerve.. Intracranial calcifications are seen in hypoparathyroidism, pseudohypoparathyroidism, hyperparathyroidism (especially due to renal failure), congenital infections (Toxoplasmosis), toxins (Carbon monoxide, lead), neoplasms ...

Updated guidelines recommend steroids for patients with new-onset Bells palsy, which increases the probability of recovery of facial nerve function, while the addition of antivirals is associated with a modest benefit.
Our meta-analysis of data from six randomised controlled trials shows that a high proportion of patients with Bells palsy achieve at least partial facial recovery when given steroids or steroids and antivirals (89.7% overall using per protocol data). Our pooled odds ratio for facial muscle recovery showed that antivirals provided no added benefit over steroids alone (odds ratio 1.50, 95% confidence interval 0.83 to 2.69; P=0.18). The two highest quality studies,6 14 which were double blind, had the greatest effect on the pooled odds ratio. Subgroup analysis of patients treated within three days of symptom onset showed similar findings, with no benefit seen with combination therapy. Likewise, subgroup analysis of length of follow-up and type of antiviral showed no benefit of antivirals in addition to steroids.. There are, however, more subtle differences between the included studies that need to be explored. Firstly, the severity of facial muscle paralysis at presentation differed between two of ...

which makes encouraging noises about what acupuncture can achieve, and there is certainly a huge amount of research literature from China where this is a much higher incidence of the problem. Chinese medicine describes this as a problem to do with invasion of wind. This is rather alien sounding to the western ear, but Chinese medicine is based on a fundamental theory about the flow of energy, called qi, in the body, and what helps and hinders its flow. In Chinese medicine theory external/climate factors are just as relevant and important as internal or material causes, and for an agrarian race exposed to the climate day to day, the idea that the wind as a pervasive force could disrupt the flow is a natural consequence of the thought pattern.

I had a client with Bells Palsy. I used superficial Lymphatic Drainage on the head and neck and then did articulation work on the skull. I believe I did some Cranialsacral in the session as it creates a beautiful, easy transition of the Lymphatic Drainage techniques. I did two sessions in a 4 day period with significant change after each session. Two days after the second session all paralysis was gone. The M.D. was shocked and so was I! This is the first time I have used LDT on this specific diagnosis. I didnt know what to expect and am not sure if such dramatic results are the normal effect of LDT in this situation. But I do love Lymphatic Drainage and in this case it appeared to be an effective way to support the healing process ...
Fifteen-year-old Shelly woke up one morning feeling like she had just received a shot of Novocain from the dentist. When she looked in the mirror, she saw that her face seemed limp on one side. She could not smile, and only one side of her face seemed to work. Shelly screamed for her parents and they came running. When they saw her face, they became worried that she had had a stroke * or had developed a brain tumor. They rushed her to the hospital emergency room. At the hospital, the doctor examined Shelly and asked her and her parents about Shellys medical history. Then the doctor performed several diagnostic tests to find out whether she had high blood pressure or Lyme Disease. At that point, the doctor was able to explain that the symptoms indicated Bells Palsy, a fairly common and harmless condition. It took three weeks for Shellys condition to go away, and those three weeks felt more like three years to Shelly, but she was grateful that it was not something more serious. ...

This final post in my series about bells palsy is more or less a time line of what I experienced, and how I felt with each milestone, as well as the acceptance, both rationally and emotionally, that Id never be back to where I was before this happened.. Ninety-three days after being diagnosed with Bells Palsy, I had an MRI. My neurologist had anticipated recovery much sooner, and he felt we needed to rule out other possible diagnoses. The test itself went well, but itd be another several days before Id have any answers. Waiting is always hard, especially when theres a chance it could be worse news. I couldnt wait for the three days, and called two days after, but there were no answers, yet. The following day, as promised (I need more patience!), my doctors office called, and assured me I *just* had a very bad case of Bells Palsy. So, although relieved, I was still very frustrated. Three months in, with very little progress, was scary! The longer someone goes without change, the less ...

Objectives: To compare the results of nerve excitability test (NET) with the Iateneyand amplitude of the compound muscle action potential (CMAP) and to determine the prognostic value of quantitative measurement of muscle power in the prognosis of Bells palsy. Patients and Methods: Sixty-two patients with newonset Bells palsy were evaluated with NET, CMAP Iateney and amplitude and the quantitative measurement of muscle power. The palsies were classified according to the House-Brackmann system. The results were obtained from both the involved and healthy sides and compared with those obtained six months Iater. Results: According to the House-Brackmann system, improvement was complete in 38 patients, good (grade II-III) in 10 patients, moderate (grade IV-V) in eight patients, and poor (grade VI) in six patients. Improvement was significantly correlated with the initial values of NET and CMAP amplitudes (NET: r=-80, ...

These patients were hypertensive, and Patient 1 was also diabetic. Moreover, in the third patient, the facial palsy appeared 3 weeks after the acute myocardial infarction, and so it is difficult to establish a cause-and-effect relationship..

A syndrome characterized by the acute onset of unilateral facial paralysis which progresses over a 2-5 day period. Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with Herpesvirus 1, Human infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376)
Symptoms of this temporary form of facial paralysis caused by a swollen, inflamed or compressed nerve that controls the facial muscles vary from person to person. They may include twitching, weakness or paralysis on one or both sides of the face (though the latter is rarer); drooping of the eyelid and corner of the mouth; drooling; impaired taste; or excessive tearing in one eye. Symptoms usually come on suddenly and reach their peak within 48 hours. Bells palsy can occur at any age but is less common before age 15 or after age 60. Among the 40,000 Americans afflicted each year, Bells palsy is more common among those with diabetes or upper respiratory ailments like the flu or a cold ...

Bells palsy affects 11 to 40 people per 100 000 population each year,1 and although most patients recover, as many as 30% are left with facial disfigurement and pain. Uncertainty surrounds the most commonly used treatments, corticosteroids and antiviral agents: two Cochrane reviews examining their effectiveness concluded that there were unsatisfactory data to determine definitive treatment.2 3 However, on the basis of a more recent randomised controlled trial of prednisolone and aciclovir for early Bells palsy,4 we now propose that prednisolone should be prescribed immediately on diagnosis and that aciclovir either alone or in combination does not confer any benefit. ...

Imaging of facial nerve schwannomas includes both MRI and CT. On noncontrast temporal bone CT, the findings include a tubular soft tissue mass along the course of the facial nerve with enlargement of the facial nerve canal. The bony margins are usually smooth and benign-appearing. On MRI, these lesions have intermediate to low signal intensity on T1-weighted imaging and high signal intensity on T2-weighted imaging. Following the administration of intravenous gadolinium, facial nerve schwannomas enhance homogenously. The differential diagnosis includes normal intratemporal facial nerve enhancement, Bells palsy, facial nerve hemangioma, and facial nerve perineural parotid malignancy. Based on clinical presentation, facial nerve schwannoma can be distinguished from Bells palsy and a hemangioma by a more gradual onset of facial nerve paralysis vs an acute onset in these other entities. Normal facial nerve enhancement is asymptomatic, and facial nerve perineural parotid malignancy is associated ...
Objective: To investigate the efficacy of functional training of facial mimic muscles for patients with incomplete peripheral facial nerve injury. Methods: Ninety-two patients with 241 injured branches of incomplete peripheral facial nerve injury were divided into a treatment group and a control group. The treatment group consisted of 58 cases that received functional training of facial mimic muscles. The rest of the cases served as controls. Assessment parameters included the House-Brackmann grading system, a quantitative facial nerve function estimating system and electroneurography. According to the three assessments, the facial nerve injury was divided into four grades: normal, minor, moderate and severe. The treatment group started training facial mimic muscle activity 2 weeks after facial nerve injury. After follow-ups of 1 to 4 years, the outcomes were statistically analysed. Results: In the minor facial nerve injury group, there was no significant difference in the time needed for ...
