Bilateral simultaneous lower motor neuron facial nerve palsy due to Guillain-barre syndrome.
J Postgrad Med Inst Jan ;33(1):79-82.
Bilateral facial nerve palsy (FNP) is a rare, diagnostically perplexing clinical presentation. While idiopathic Bell`s palsy is the most frequent etiology of unilateral FNP, multiple etiologies have been implicated in facial diplegia including infectious, neurologic, neoplastic, traumatic or metabolic causes. We report here, a 64-years-old male, who presented with simultaneous bilateral FNP that was attributed to Guillain-Barre syndrome. He made a noticeable recovery after conservative management.
