Abstract

Bilateral simultaneous facial paralysis is an extremely rare clinical entity. Unlike the unilateral form, bilateral facial paralysis seldom falls into Bell’s category. It is most often a special finding in a symptom complex of a systemic
disease; many of them are potentially life-threatening, and therefore the condition warrants urgent medical intervention.
Lyme disease, Guillian-Barre syndrome, Bell’s palsy, leukemia, sarcoidosis, bacterial meningitis, syphilis, leprosy, Moebius syndrome, infectious mononucleosis, and skull fracture are the most common cause of bilateral facial paralysis. Here we present a 16-year-old patient with bilateral simultaneous Bell’s palsy.
