Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with HERPESVIRUS 1, HUMAN infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376) PubMed Medline search on Bell's Palsy

Bell's Palsy
Children commonly get Bells palsy, a condition that causes one side of their face to be paralyzed. It usually occurs about two weeks after a viral infection, especially after infection with the Epstein-Barr (the virus that causes mononucleosis) or herpes simplex virus (a common cause of fever blisters) or after having Lyme disease. Bell palsy is thought to be an allergic or immune reaction to having one of these viruses. Children with Bells palsy may have pain or tingling in their ear, then, the upper and lower part of one side of their face will become paralyzed (this happens very quickly, usually within hours), they will be unable to close their eye and their mouth will droop in the corner (this is all on the same side of their face). They will have a normal sense of touch and sensation on that side of their face, although they may lose their sense of taste on the front part of their tongue. There is no treatment for Bells palsy, and although commonly used in adults, steroids are not routinely used in the treatment of children with Bell palsy. Most children will recover without any problems within two to four weeks. Some children will recover and have very mild weakness in the muscles on that side of their face and a few will remain paralyzed.

*For Medical Professionals only, registration required Bell's palsy, (Sir Charles Bell, 1774–1842, Scottish physiologist in London), unilateral acute paralysis of the facial muscles (supplied by the seventh cranial nerve) without definable cause. Most patients have a recovery of the facial motor function within 2 months. The diagnosis should only be used in patients without evidence of pathology in the parotid gland, temporal bone or central nervous system. Gadolinium-enhanced MRI shows in many patients a typical linear enhancement of the facial nerve, most pronounced in the distal intracanalicular segment (near the fundus of the internal auditory canal) and labyrinthine segment, segments normally not showing enhancement ( Fig.1

Subject: Bells Palsy Bell's Palsy-Idiopathic Facial Nerve Paralysis Bell's palsy, named after British physician Charles Bell, is an idiopathic, neurological, temporary facial paralysis of cranial nerve VII affecting facial muscles, the musculoskeletal system, nerves, and the nervous system. Cranial nerve VII passes through the stylomastoid foramen found posterior to the ear on either side of the skull. The nerve then branches into thousands of smaller nerves which innervate the face (affecting expression), the neck (affecting the muscles), the anterior 2/3's of the tongue, the salivary and tear glands, and the outer ear (affecting sound volume). If Bell's palsy is present, all features on either side of the face are affected. If only a few of the numerous symptoms are seen, a tumor, stroke, or trauma may be the cause. CAUSES:
Bell's palsy, being idiopathic, causes physicians to be circumspect about its origin. However, it is thought to have viral, bacterial, and autoimmune ties. Such ailments include nerve inflammation/muscular signal block from herpes simplex 1 via unknown carriers (most reinforced), impaired immunity (stress, illness (i.e. HIV, AIDS), trauma) or anything directly or indirectly compromising the immune system (e.g. Bacterial infections such as Lyme disease and middle ear infection (Otitis Media), or trauma, tumors, and congenital defects). Anything that causes inflammation and swelling of cranial nerve VII can trigger Bell's palsy.

Acute Idiopathic Facial Palsy (Bell's Palsy) Overview Acute peripheral paralysis of the face produced by a viral immune-mediated disease. Possible pathogenesis: After a primary infection, herpes simplex virus became latent in the cranial and spinal sensory ganglia. Reactivation of the virus leads to replication of virus within the ganglion cells. Virus travels up and down the axons, induces an inflammatory response. Results in segmental demyelination presented as nerve paralysis. Incidence: between 15 - 40 / 100,000 population per year No evidence of racial predilection Incidence of Bell's palsy increases with age. Sexual predilection: Age 10 - 19 years, twice as common in women Age 40, 1.5 times more common in men. Pregnant women have 3.3 times more risk than nonpregnant women in the same age group. Diabetic patients: 4.5 times more likely to develop Bell's palsy. In 10% of the patients, a positive family history of Bell's palsy is present.

Nervous System Disorders Bell's Palsy What is Bell's palsy?
Bell's palsy is an unexplained episode of facial muscle weakness or paralysis that begins suddenly and worsens over three to five days. This condition results from damage to the 7th (facial) cranial nerve, and may be accompanied by pain or discomfort on one side of the face and head. Bell's palsy strikes men and woman equally, usually between the ages of 15 and 60. This nerve disorder afflicts approximately 40,000 Americans each year, and is more often seen in pregnant women, persons with diabetes, influenza, a cold, or other respiratory ailment. It is named for Sir Charles Bell, a Scottish surgeon and physiologist, for his work on facial palsy. In 1821, he demonstrated that the facial nerve was a separate nerve. What causes Bell's palsy?
A specific cause of Bell's palsy is unknown, however, it has been suggested that the disorder may be inherited. It also may be associated with the following:

Back to John Murtagh indexBell's palsy. What is Bell's palsy? How commonis Bell's palsy? Each year about 1 person in 2000 gets Bell's palsy.
Bell's palsy .. see also updated version ( pdf - Jan 2003 ) What is Bell's palsy? It is a condition where the muscles on one side of the face become paralysed because of a fault in the nerve (called the facial nerve) that controls those muscles. We are not certain what causes this problem, although a viral infection affecting the nerve or the nearby ear may be a cause in some instances. The facial nerve leaves the brain through a very small hole in the base of the skull near the ear. The nerve becomes swollen, and because of the tight fit in this hole it does not work properly. What are the symptoms? The main symptom, which comes on quite suddenly (maybe overnight), is weakness of one side of the face. The corner of the mouth droops, the eye cannot close properly and actions of the face such as smiling and frowning look out of shape. Some ear pain may be felt just before the problem develops. How common is Bell's palsy? Each year about 1 person in 2000 gets Bell's palsy. It can occur at any age, but is most common in young adults. What is the outcome?
