Abstract

Acute facial nerve paralysis is a relatively common pediatric disorder. Idiopathic facial nerve palsy (Bell's palsy) has to be distinguished from other etiologies. Retrospective review of the results of routine diagnostic work-up studies of our patients, failed to reveal any clinically significant abnormalities and did not provide more data as far as etiology or indication for management. Significant history and positive findings on physical examination should direct the physician towards specific diagnostic procedures.
