La paralysie faciale périphérique est une pathologie relativement fréquente qui exige une attitude diagnostique et thérapeutique spécifique.

La paralysie faciale idiopathique est la forme la plus fréquente des paralysies faciales mais reste un diagnostic d’élimination. Son pronostic est plus favorable chez l’enfant que chez l’adulte.
