Disease relevance of Bell Palsy


High impact information on Bell Palsy

  • Practice parameter: Steroids, acyclovir, and surgery for Bell's palsy (an evidence-based review): report of the Quality Standards Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology [6].
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-defined CFS patients lacking antecedent signs of Lyme disease--erythema migrans, Bell's palsy, or large joint arthritis--are not likely to have laboratory evidence of Bb infection [7].
  • Treatment of Bell palsy with prednisone: a prospective, randomized study [8].
  • Further analysis of the biochemical nature of the reduced activity has revealed that in sera of Bell palsy patients the substances that are fractionated within the Ig fraction are responsible for the reduced capacity to induce sprouting without loss of supportive molecules [9].
  • Dystonic reaction to a phenothiazine presenting as Bell's palsy [10].
