Melkersson-rosenthal syndrome associated with hemifacial spasm

Hatice Ferhan Komurcu, Omer Anlar.

Melkersson-Rosenthal Syndrome, with findings of repeating facial paralysis, orofacial edema, and fissured tongue, is rarely seen clinically. We present the case of a 49-year-old female patient diagnosed with Melkersson-Rosenthal Syndrome, with the association of hemifacial spasm. The case diagnosed as Melkersson-Rosenthal Syndrome by the symptoms of the recurrent episodes of facial paralysis, labial edema, and lingual fissure, accompanied by hemifacial spasm is the first to be reported in the literature.

Key words: Melkersson-Rosenthal Syndrome, Hemifacial spasm, Fissured tongue, Facial paralysis, Orofacial edema
