Abstract

The etiology of idiopathic facial nerve paralysis is still obscure. Two major concepts are reported in the literature, ischemia of the nerve within the temporal bone, and viral infection of the facial nerve. In the present paper, the morphological changes of the paralyzed facial nerve, atraumatically induced by selective vascular embolization [2], are reported.
