Bell's Palsy

Bell's palsy : It is the lower motor neuron ( LMN ) type of facial palsy .The exact cause is not known but most probably it occurs due to compression of facial nerve in the facial canal just above the stylomatoid foramen following an inflammation. Difference between upper and lower motor neuron type of facial palsies ? In lower motor neuron palsy whole of the face on the side of the lesion is paralyzed whereas in upper motor neuron facial palsy the upper part of the face is not affected and only lower half of the face on the opposite side is paralyzed.Dr. Dinesh Gupta Versha Vedwan

It is idiopathic facial paralysis. Bell's palsy may be a reaction to a viral infection. It rarely occurs more than once. Swelling and inflammation of the cranial nerve VII is seen in individuals with Bell's palsy. Most scientists believe that reactivation of an existing (dormant) viral infection may cause the disorder. Anti viral drugs and Corticosteroid...Are the line of treatment.
