Facial Nerve Paralysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Patients afflicted with facial paralysis suffer significant physical and psychosocial effects that can lead to depression and social isolation. Timely diagnosis and initiation of appropriate therapy are keys to achieving good outcomes in the management of facial paralysis. Eye protection is of paramount importance to prevent vision loss in patients with impaired eye closure. Patients should be assessed for signs of depression and treated appropriately.
