134 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Atrophy, Trigeminal Neuralgia

  • Brain Surgery

    Patients recover relatively quickly in comparison with traditional pterional operations, with potentially less pain, chewing difficulties and facial muscle atrophy.[pacificneuroscienceinstitute.org] neuralgia management (n 1,121).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We also use radiosurgery to treat an array of brain disorders, including vascular malformations, acoustic neuromas and trigeminal neuralgia.[ahn.org]

  • Temporal Lobe Tumor

    Patients recover relatively quickly in comparison with traditional pterional operations, with potentially less pain, chewing difficulties and facial muscle atrophy.[pacificneuroscienceinstitute.org] (Trigeminal Neuralgia has its forum below.)[neurotalk.psychcentral.com] It is also the main approach for microvascular decompression of the cranial nerves (for trigeminal neuralgia or hemifacial spasm).[pacificneuroscienceinstitute.org]

  • Melkersson-Rosenthal Syndrome

    We described a case of Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome in whom facial nerve branch palsies and an isolated masseter muscle atrophy were found in association with indolent multifocal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neurological involvement of the MCTD usually includes, according to the frequency of the occurrence, trigeminal neuralgia, headaches, sensorineural hearing, cerebral haemorrhage[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other features associated with Melkersson Rosenthal syndrome: Trigeminal neuralgia Paresthesias Ocular palsies Blepharospasm Epiphora Keratitis Psychotic episodes Migraine[drtbalu.com]

  • Facial Hemiatrophy

    Definition: A syndrome characterized by slowly progressive unilateral atrophy of facial subcutaneous fat, muscle tissue, skin, cartilage, and bone.[hon.ch] Similar to our case, phenotypes of the other published cases seem to agree with trigeminal neuropathic pain rather than trigeminal neuralgia specifically.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Parry-Romberg syndrome is also accompanied by neurological abnormalities including seizures and episodes of severe facial pain ( trigeminal neuralgia ).[medicinenet.com]

  • Scleroderma

    Parry-Romberg syndrome (PRS) is characterized by progressive atrophy of facial skin, soft tissues, muscle, and bone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] neuralgia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unlike Parry-Romberg disease, there is no optic nerve dysfunction, burnout phase and generally no muscle or bone atrophy.[chop.edu]

  • Localized Scleroderma

    CT scan coronal sections of the face showed severe atrophy of the tongue and facial muscles. The EMG studies failed to demonstrate a neurogenic or myogenic process.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Associations between facial scleroderma and neurological symptoms (including headache, trigeminal neuralgia, myopathy of external eye muscles, and seizure) have been reported[consultant360.com] Because active disease can persist for years, growing children are at risk for major morbidity including joint contractures, limb length discrepancy, and facial atrophy [[ped-rheum.biomedcentral.com]

  • Facial Spasm

    However, over time, Botox injections have lessening effect on treating hemifacial spasm, and can cause permanent atrophy or paralysis of facial muscles.[blepharospasm.org] This often results in pain relief (trigeminal neuralgia) or resolution of spasm (hemifacial spasm).[neurosurgery-texas.com] Facial myokymia - Myokymia is the spontaneous, fine fascicular contractions of muscle without muscular atrophy or weakness.[blepharospasm.org]

  • Congenital facial nerve palsy

    muscle atrophy (Late) Facial Paresis: Left Bell's Palsy 8 Epidemiology Lifetime prevalence: 6.4 to 20 per 1,000 Incidence: Increased with age Overall: 0.5 per year per 1,000[163.178.103.176] Trigeminal neuralgia , a condition characterized by pain coming from the trigeminal nerve, which affects the face — most commonly one side of the jaw or cheek.[hopkinsmedicine.org] muscle atrophy (Late) Electrophysiology EMG Denervation Synkinesis: Late Blink reflex Abnormal ipsilateral R1 (early, disynaptic) R2 (late multisynaptic) responses Synkinesis[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Congenital Abducens Nerve Palsy

    muscle atrophy (Late) Electrophysiology EMG Denervation Synkinesis: Late Blink reflex Abnormal ipsilateral R1 (early, disynaptic) R2 (late multisynaptic) responses Synkinesis[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Trigeminal neuralgia , a condition characterized by pain coming from the trigeminal nerve, which affects the face — most commonly one side of the jaw or cheek.[hopkinsmedicine.org] neuralgia .[amboss.com]

  • Familial Congenital Palsy of Trochlear Nerve

    muscle atrophy (Late) Electrophysiology EMG Denervation Synkinesis: Late Blink reflex Abnormal ipsilateral R1 (early, disynaptic) R2 (late multisynaptic) responses Synkinesis[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] However, currently no systematic reviews exist regarding the effect of acupuncture on trigeminal neuralgia (TN).[unboundmedicine.com] In patients with severe SO muscle atrophy, trochlear nerve imaging with high-resolution MR imaging revealing an absent nerve would favor a congenital etiology, while a relatively[ajnr.org]
