Example text

Facial nerve damage produces paresis of the ipsilateral upper and lower face muscles with or without loss of taste sensation. Sudden onset, idiopathic facial paralysis, usually with loss of taste sensation, generically labeled Bell’s palsy, has traditionally been attributed to an inflammation or infection (Fig. 4-15). In many of these cases, herpes simplex virus or less often Borrelia burgdorferi, a tick-borne spirochete that causes Lyme disease (see Chapters 5 and 7), has been the culprit. Destructive injuries, including lacerations, cerebellopontine angle tumors, and carcinomatous meningitis, damage not only the facial nerve but usually its neighboring cerebellopontine angle nerves as well.

Normally, because of the synapse, stimulating one cornea will provoke bilateral blinking. However, if the cotton tip is first applied to the right cornea and neither eye blinks, and then to the left cornea and both eyes blink, the right trigeminal nerve (afferent limb) is impaired. On the other hand, if cotton stimulation on the right cornea fails to provide a right eye blink but succeeds in provoking a left eye blink, the right facial nerve (efferent limb) is impaired. In testing the motor component, jaw muscle strength is performed by asking the patient to clench and then protrude the jaw.

A psychogenic sensory loss, as already mentioned, can be a discrepancy between pain and temperature sensations, which are normally carried together by the peripheral nerves and then the lateral spinothalamic tracts. (Discrepancy between pain and position sensations in the fingers, in contrast, is indicative of syringomyelia [syrinx]. ) Testing for sensory loss when the arms are twisted, placed out of sight behind the patient’s back, or seen in a mirror may expose psychogenic sensory deficits. Finally, because sensory loss impairs function, patients with genuine sensory loss in their feet or hands cannot perform many tasks if their eyes are closed.
