An unusual presentation of Facial paralysis: A case report
AUTHOR(S): AE Noor, N Amin, MTH Chowdhury, TM Shanta
ABSTRACT:Facial paralysis is a neuropathy of the peripheral seventh cranial nerve, usually resulting from traumatic, compressive, infective, inflammatory or metabolic abnormalities. However, in many cases no etiology is identified and the eventual diagnosis is idiopathic. Here, we present one such case of a patient of facial paralysis with slight slurred pronunciation during any recitation, heaviness of the right side of the face and the flu-like symptoms about 1-2 weeks ago.
