Facial synkinesis is the simultaneous contraction of the certain facial musculature accompanying a motion of designated muscle in the face. With the exception of rare afflictions that are congenital in origin, most patients develop as a sequel to facial nerve paralysis due to trauma, tumor, and surgical injury. As an idiopathic congenital form, oculo-nasal synkinesis which reveals co-contraction of orbicularis oculi and the compressor narium minor muscles which are innervated by separate branches of the facial nerve have been already reported...

This research was aimed at establishing how the absence of active whisking in rats affects acquisition and recovery of spatial memory. The mystacial vibrissae were irreversibly paralyzed by cutting the facial nerve's mandibular and buccal branches bilaterally in the facial nerve lesion group (N=14); control animals were submitted to sham-surgery (N=15). Sham-operated (N=11) and facial nerve-lesioned (N=10) animals were trained (one session, eight acquisition trials) and tested 24hours later in a circular Barnes maze...

Temporal bone fractures can occur as a result of various head trauma. The most common cause of the hemotympanum is traumatic temporal bone fracture. Facial paralysis and hearing loss can be seen associated with temporal bone fracture. The development of the internal carotid artery aneurysm after temporal bone fracture is extremely rare. In this article, the authors evaluated carotid artery aneurysm that developed after temporal fracture and aneurism compressed by coagulated blood mass which showed itself as a hemotympanum...

Importance: Patients with facial paralysis are perceived negatively by society in a number of domains. Society's perception of the health utility of varying degrees of facial paralysis and the value society places on reconstructive surgery for facial reanimation need to be quantified. Objective: To measure health state utility of varying degrees of facial paralysis, willingness to pay (WTP) for a repair, and the subsequent value of facial reanimation surgery as perceived by society...

BACKGROUND: Although many factors have been found to be involved in recovery from Bell's palsy, no study has investigated the association between recovery from Bell's palsy and obesity. This study therefore evaluated the association between recovery from Bell's palsy and body mass index (BMI). METHODS: Subjects were classified into five groups based on BMI (kg/m2). Demographic and clinical characteristics were compared among these groups. Assessed factors included sex, age, time from paralysis to visiting a hospital, presence of comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension, degree of initial facial nerve paralysis by House-Brackmann (H-B) grade and neurophysiological testing, and final recovery rate...

Nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) with mastoid recurrence is extraordinarily rare, and its development is thought to involve the Eustachian tube. We herein report a case of NPC with mastoid recurrence masquerading as acute otomastoiditis with facial paralysis in a 60-year-old man 44 months after concurrent chemoradiotherapy. The diagnosis was confirmed by exploratory tympanomastoidectomy with biopsy and Epstein-Barr-encoding region (EBER) in situ hybridization. Distant liver metastasis was detected simultaneously, and the patient underwent salvage treatment...

Vestibular schwannoma treatment with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) carries a risk of facial nerve (CNVII) palsy that is lower than that with microneurosurgery. The results of hemihypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis (HHFA) have not been described yet in CNVII palsy after failed stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). Here we report a case series of the first four consecutive patients (three women; average age 58.5, age range: 46-74), who underwent HHFA due to failed SRS. All patients were admitted because of progressive peripheral facial nerve palsy...

Peripheral nerves exhibit remarkable self-repairing reparative activity after a simple crush or cut injury. However, the neuronal transection involving a nerve gap overwhelms their repairing activity and causes persistent paralysis. Here, we show that an implantation of the serum-free conditioned medium from stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHED-CM) immersed in a collagen sponge into the nerve gap formed by rat facial nerves transection restored the neurological function. In contrast, SHED-CM specifically depleted of a set of anti-inflammatory M2 macrophage inducers, Monocyte monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and the secreted ectodomain of sialic acid-binding Ig-like lectin-9 (sSiglec-9) lost the ability to restore neurological function in this model...

BACKGROUND: Myoepithelial carcinoma (MEC) is a rare salivary gland tumor. Its long-term prognosis remains unknown because of the paucity of reported cases with long-term follow-up. Although some case series exist, the clinical features of MEC vary considerably depending on the site of origin. Therefore, accumulation of these rare cases is important. CASE PRESENTATION: Case 1: An 89-year-old man presented with a 10-year history of a mass originating from the right parotid gland and involving the neck...

BACKGROUND: Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome (MRS) is a relatively rare syndrome characterised by the clinical triad of persisting or recurrent facial oedema, recurrent peripheral facial palsy, and a fissured tongue. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 30-year-old male patient presented with a left peripheral facial palsy spreading to the right side of the face. The left-sided facial paralysis recurred twice after initial recovery. The patient had also suffered from oedema of the lip and face, which sometimes occurred simultaneously with the paralysis, and he had always had a fissured tongue...

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) is a rare complication of latent varicella-zoster virus (VZV) infection that can occur in immunocompetent host. It usually involves ipsilateral facial paralysis, ear pain and facial vesicles. Disseminated herpes zoster is another complication of VZV infection typically seen in immunocompromised hosts. We describe a patient with relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who presented simultaneously with RHS and disseminated herpes zoster. While other complications have been documented to coexist with RHS, to our knowledge, this is the first reported case in the literature of concurrent RHS with disseminated herpes zoster...

Therapeutic strategy is controversial and not yet uniform for patients with trigeminal neuralgia (TN) and persistent or recurrent facial pain after microvascular decompression, percutaneous radiofrequency thermocoagulation (PRT), or Gamma Knife surgery. The outcomes and risks of PRT for these patients are not clearly understood. The authors performed a retrospective study of 84 patients with persistent or recurrent TN after surgery who then underwent PRT between 2007 and 2013. Data were obtained with chart review and telephone interviews...
