High impact information on Facial Nerve Diseases

  • Use of gabapentin in a case of facial neuritis [3].
  • RESULTS: Cats receiving injection of kainic acid adjacent to facial nucleus all developed spontaneous writhing movements of the face ipsilateral to the injection site, clinically resembling facial myokymia in humans [4].
  • DNA analysis for the MJD mutation was clearly useful for making an accurate diagnosis in patients without bulging eyes, facial myokymia, dystonia or marked spasticity [5].
