PMID:  3285889     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case report of a unilateral lower motor neurone facial nerve paralysis complicating bilateral fractures of the mandible is described. The injury was the result of a fall. The differential diagnosis is discussed together with the treatment undertaken. The importance of a thorough examination of the cranial nerves following trauma is emphasised. A review of the literature is presented with special reference to the relative merits and indications for the use of cortico-steroids and surgical exploration.
