Facial paralysis FP is a loss of facial movement due to nerve damage. Most existing diagnosis systems of FP are subjective, e. In this paper, we propose an efficient yet objective facial paralysis assessment approach via automatic computational image analysis. First, the facial blood flow of FP patients is measured by the technique of laser speckle contrast imaging to generate both RGB color images and blood flow images. Finally, three HB score classifiers are employed to quantify the severity of FP patients.

This paper reports 6 outbreaks of neurological disease associated with paralysis of the facial and vestibulocochlear nerves caused by intracranial space occupying lesions in feedlot cattle. The clinical signs observed were characterized by head tilt, uni or bilateral drooping and paralysis of the ears, eyelid ptosis, keratoconjunctivitis, and different degrees of ataxia. Morbidity and mortality rates ranged from 1. Gross lesions observed included yellow, thickened leptomeninges, and marked enlargement of the roots of cranial nerves VII facial and VIII vestibulocochlear. Histopathologically, there was severe, chronic, granulomatous meningitis and, in one case, chronic, granulomatous neuritis of the VII and VIII cranial nerves. Attempts to identify bacterial, viral, or parasitic agents were unsuccessful.

Introduction: The ethiologic diferencial diagnostic for facial nerve paralisis is still a challenge and the literature has shown conflictive results concerning its epidemiology. Objective: To outline the incidence of the different ethiologies and the profile of peripheral facial nerve paralysis patients in the otolaryngology ambulatory of the Faculdade de Ciencias Medicas e Biologicas da PUC-SP - campus Sorocaba. Method: The records of 54 patients with facial nerve paralysis seen during the years of and were analysed retrospectively.
Alterations of facial muscles may critically humper patients' quality of life. One of the worst conditions is the reduction or abolition of eye blinking. To prevent these adverse effects, surgical rehabilitation of eyelid function is the current treatment choice.
