with this disease spread the bacteria through a bite which allows it to enter the blood stream of the host. Patients with Lyme disease often have a history of tick exposure, rash, or arthralgias. Bell’s palsy, “a type of paralysis or weakness of the muscles in the face” (WebMD, 2014), is a secondary condition that occurs as a result of the bacteria released into the blood stream after a bite by a “deer tick”.
someone with Bell’s Palsy. It is said that Bell’s Palsy is responsible for 60-75% of persons with acute one sided facial paralysis (Cabrera & Schub, 2004). This phenomenon of one sided facial paralysis was first discovered by Sir Charles Bell, who happened to be a surgeon from Scotland (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, 2003). Since he made the connection of the facial nerve and the temporary paralysis that it causes, it was only right that they name the condition after him.
o Renal tests for impact of dehydration. As Ingrid is elderly I would be concerned that sustained emesis may result in impaired renal functioning with a risk of acute renal failure if not monitored and countered with intravenous fluids. o Full blood count. Miravalle (2015), states that a WBC count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and serum electrolytes will help differentiate between inflammatory or infectious causes. Diagnostic Test Results These were not referred to until after a discussion regarding
Bell's palsy is one of the most scary things that one could get. How it happens is not exactly sure. It happens suddenly and when you get it, it is in you forever. That means that at any give time it could strike again. Bell's palsy is the most common type of facial paralysis. Every year it happens to over 40,000 people. It can happen to anyone at any age. I decided to do my paper on Bell's palsy because you talked about viruses on our last lecture. When you talked to us about lysogenic pathway Bell's

tumours are largely benign the tumour may just be monitored with regular MRI’s (Marzo, Zender & Leonetti, 2009). Surgical removal is considered when there is gross facial weakness (Marzo, Zender & Leonetti, 2009). Acute Otitus Media with facial nerve palsy Diagnostic Reasoning Acute Otitis Media (AOM), is an inflammation with bacterial or viral pathology of the middle ear (Waheem, 2016). AOM commonly
Introduction Bell’s Palsy is defined by a temporary, unilateral paralysis of the face caused by inflammation of the facial nerve (cranial nerve VII). Inflammation of the facial nerve is unknown although theories about a viral infection or disorders of the immune system have been found in research as possible causes. An MRI or CT scan can be used in order to diagnosis Bell’s Palsy by ruling out any other disorders with the same symptoms such as stroke, Lyme disease, or tumors. The disorder occurs
What Is Bell’s Palsy? Bell’s palsy is caused when the seventh cranial nerve experiences pressure, obstruction, or damage. In mild cases, the damage is only to the myelin sheath (the fatty cover). The seventh nerve is responsible for controlling the facial muscles on a certain side of the face. When the nerve is obstructed, the muscles weaken and experience paralysis. Nerves become swollen, inflamed, or compressed. Bell’s palsy is less common before the age of 15 and after the age of 60. Women within
Bell’sPalsyFollowingStaged Dental Procedures Abstract Facial nerve palsy can be caused by specific disease processes such as cerebrovascular events, infections and trauma. The lower motor neuron facial nerve paralysis which has no specific identifiable causation is termed Bell’s Palsy. Bell’s palsy has been reported to occur following dental anaesthesia and dental related procedures. We report a 50 year old patient with ‘alternating’ facial nerve palsy (occurring on opposite sides, on two or more separate occasions)
determining the relationship between Bell’s palsy in children and its relationship with immunization. Authors discuss the problem that immunization can be one of the causes for Bell’s palsy in children, as there more than one cases of Bell’s palsy have been reported followed by immunization with influenza and hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccines. Hence, the authors aim at conducting a population-based epidemiologic study of immunization and its relation with Bell’s palsy among children aged 18 years or younger
