Facial Nerve compression

Trauma to the facial nerve with resulting facial paralysis has been described in various scenarios.[2][4] These include:

  • Basilar skull fracture (temporal bone, predominantly)

  • Penetrating trauma to the extratemporal aspect of the facial nerve (such as a knife and gunshot wounds)

  • Birth trauma (most often with forceps delivery)

  • Iatrogenic (typically during tumor excision but also during facial or mastoid surgery)

  • Barotrauma (generally from scuba diving or airplane travel)

  • Lightning strike
