BELL'S PALSY SUCCESSFULLY TREATED WITH CORTISONE

BELL'S PALSY SUCCESSFULLY TREATED WITH CORTISONE Abstract IN OCTOBER. 1951, Rothendler1 reported satisfactory results in a case of Bell's palsy following the intramuscular administration of cortisone. The present report is that of a case of Bell's palsy in which cortisone, given orally, proved to be effective, even though it was first administered nine days after onset of the paralysis. REPORT OF A CASE L. W., a 45-year-old white woman, awoke on March 16, 1952, with paralysis of the right side of her face. When she was first seen, eight days later, her physical status was as follows: There was total lower-motor-neurone paralysis of the right side of her face. She was unable to wrinkle the right half of her forehead; she was unable to frown; when she was asked to close her eyes, the left eye closed, and the right remained open; there was eversion of the lower lid, and the eyebrow could not be elevated.

REPORT OF A CASE L. W., a 45-year-old white woman, awoke on March 16, 1952, with paralysis of the right side of her face.
