Left Facial Neuritis (Bell’s Palsy)


MRI – Enhancement of the intracanalicular, labyrinthine and mastoid segments of the facial nerve including the geniculate ganglion.


Facial neuritis or Bell’s palsy is related to infection, vasculitis, or immunologic irritation. The facial nerve contains efferent fibers to the facial muscles and afferent fibers from the tongue, lacrimal gland and salivary glands. Therefore, symptoms may include facial droop (upper and lower face), abnormal tearing, reduced taste, hyperacusis and pain (usually post-auricular).
