Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Facial pain is a debilitating disorder if left untreated. It has been suggested that the most commonly undiagnosed facial pain conditions include neuropathic and myofascial pains because their pathophysiologies are not well understood. Facial neuralgias are otherwise rare in children. They are not acknowledged in most paediatric tests, there are few published reports on them, and glossopharyngeal neuralgia (GPN) has not been described in children. Some of the most common forms of facial pain will be considered and some considerations concerning the problem of atypical facial pain in young age and its treatment will be discussed.
