Bell's palsy is defined as an idiopathic unilateral facial nerve paralysis, usually self-limiting. Bell's palsy was first described by Charles Bell and is the most common cause of acute facial nerve paralysis (>80%). Immune, infective and ischemic mechanisms are all believed to play a role in the development of Bell’s palsy, but the precise cause remains unclear. From corticosteroids to botulinum injections, wide therapeutic approaches have been employed for treating bell’s palsy. Here, a case management and brief review of bell’s palsy is discussed.

Keywords: Palsy, Idiopathic, Ischemic, Botulinum.
