OBJECTIVES: We describe a novel scoring system, the facial Palsy Prognosis Prediction score (PPP score), which we test for reliability in predicting pre-therapeutic prognosis of facial palsy. We aimed to use readily available patient data that all clinicians have access to before starting treatment. DESIGN: Multicenter case series with chart review. SETTING: Three tertiary care hospitals. PARTICIPANTS: We obtained haematological and demographic data from 468 facial palsy patients who were treated between 2010 and 2014 in three tertiary care hospitals...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between prognosis of 2 different facial palsies and pretreatment hematologic laboratory values. STUDY DESIGN: Multicenter case series with chart review. SETTING: Three tertiary care hospitals. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We examined the clinical records of 468 facial palsy patients who were treated with an antiviral drug in combination with either oral or intravenous corticosteroids in participating hospitals between 2010 and 2014...

CNS involvement, except classical lymphocytic meningitis, is exceptionally rare in Kawasaki disease. Herein, we report on two atypical cases of KD with cranial nerve inflammation. The first case presented supranuclear vertical palsy and the second case Bell palsy. Outcome was promptly favorable with IV immunoglobulins, with no long-term complications. No specific KD biomarkers are available and diagnosis of atypical forms is difficult. KD can mimic a systemic illness and appropriate therapy may be delayed.

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to clarify the clinical characteristics of facial nerve palsy and the frequency of varicella-zoster virus association in Japanese children, retrospectively. METHODS: The subjects were 30 facial nerve palsy patients less than 15 years old, treated in the Department of Pediatrics, Kawasaki Medical School Hospital, Okayama, Japan, during the last 10 years. RESULTS: The male/female and right/left ratios were 16/14 and 16/13, respectively...

While it is now universally accepted that Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by varicella-zoster virus, Bell's palsy continues to be labeled "idiopathic." We review the literature associating Bell's palsy with various infectious agents as well as with Kawasaki disease, a condition in which an infectious etiology is suspected. Good evidence--mostly serological--exists for an etiologic role for the herpes group of viruses, mumps virus, and rubella virus. In addition, recent evidence has focused on Bell's palsy in human immunodeficiency virus infection and Lyme borreliosis...
