Bells Palsy

Bell’s palsy is a unilateral facial nerve paralysis, usually self-limiting, resulting in inability to control facial muscles on the affected side. Symptoms include a rapid onset of partial or complete palsy, usually in a single day. Named after Scottish anatomist Charles Bell, who first described it, Bell’s palsy is the most common acute disease involving only one nerve, and is the most common cause of acute facial nerve paralysis.
