[A case report: Ramsay Hunt syndrome with throat as starting place merger ipsilateral cranial nerver involvement].

Lin Chung Er Bi Yan Hou Tou Jing Wai Ke Za Zhi 2017 May;31(10):807-809

The clinical data of a case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome concurrent with ipsilateral Ⅴ, Ⅶ, Ⅷ, Ⅸ, Ⅹ, Ⅺ cranial nerves paralysis with throat as starting place was retrospectively analyzed, and the relevant literatures were also reviewed. The case is rare, so the relevant clinical reports are less. It is important to take the objective data as well as subjective symptoms of the patients into consideration to make a definite diagnosis, so that we can treat it as soon as possible to achieve better curative effect.

Treatment of Ramsay-Hunt's syndrome with multiple cranial nerve involvement and severe dysphagia: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Apr;97(17):e0591

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Daegu Fatima Hospital.

Rationale: Ramsay-Hunt's syndrome (RHS) is a disorder characterized by facial paralysis, herpetic eruptions on the auricle, and otic pain due to the reactivation of latent varicella zoster virus in the geniculate ganglion. A few cases of multiple cranial nerve invasion including the vestibulocochlear nerve, glossopharyngeal nerve and vagus nerve have been reported. However, there has been no report about RHS with delayed onset multiple cranial nerve involvement causing severe aspiration, and a clinical course that improved after more than one year of dysphagia rehabilitation and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG).

A case study of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in conjunction with cranial polyneuritis.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Nov;96(47):e8833

Department of Neurology, Dongzhimen Hospital, The First Affiliated Hospital of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, Beijing, China.

Rationale: Ramsay Hunt syndrome in conjunction with cranial polyneuritis is not extensively documented, and is very easily misdiagnosed.

Patient Concerns: A case of a 53-year-old male with Ramsay Hunt syndrome in conjunction with cranial polyneuritis is presented with early symptoms of vertigo, cephalalgia, and facial palsy, followed by zoster oticus 10 days later.

Diagnoses: Diagnosis was challenging as this condition presents with multiple neuropathies, and attempting to diagnose based on clinical symptoms was often misleading. Read More

Clin Neurol Neurosurg 2017 Jan 8;152:90-94. Epub 2016 Dec 8.

Department of Neurology, College of Medicine, Chungbuk National University, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Objectives: When physicians encounter patients with headache or facial pain (preeruptive pain) associated with acute herpes zoster of the head, especially before the appearance of characteristic skin eruptions (preeruptive phase), they typically find it difficult to make clinical impressions and apply appropriate diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. The objectives of this study were to describe the clinical characteristics of headache or facial pain associated with acute herpes zoster of the head and to elucidate the association between the manifestation of these symptoms in the preeruptive phase and incoming herpes zoster.

Methods: We retrospectively analyzed the clinical features of 152 patients with acute herpes zoster involving only the head who presented within 10days of rash onset at Chungbuk National University Hospital, a tertiary hospital in Chungcheongbuk-do in South Korea, between January 2011 and December 2015.

Department of Infectious Diseases, Institute of Biomedicine, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Diagnosvägen 21, Gothenburg, SE-416 85, Sweden.

Reactivation of varicella zoster virus (VZV) can manifest with facial palsy diagnosed as Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) or Ramsay Hunt Syndrome zoster sine herpete (RHS-ZSH). These syndromes are associated with poor prognosis despite treatment with antivirals and corticosteroids. Concentrations of biomarkers such as neurofilament protein (NFL), S-100β protein and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAp) have previously been measured in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to assess neuronal damage and glial pathology.

Temporal Lobe Retraction Provides Better Surgical Exposure of the Peri-Geniculate Ganglion for Facial Nerve Decompression via Transmastoid Approach.

Yonsei Med J 2016 Nov;57(6):1482-7

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Inje University College of Medicine, Goyang, Korea.

Purpose: For the exposure of the labyrinthine segment of the facial nerve, transmastoid approach is not usually considered due to being situated behind the superior semicircular canal. To obtain a better view and bigger field for manipulation in the peri-geniculate area during facial nerve decompression, retraction of temporal lobe after bony removal of tegmen mastoideum was designed via transmastoid approach.

Materials And Methods: Fifteen patients with traumatic facial paralysis [House-Brackmann (HB) grade IV-VI], 3 patients with Bell's palsy (HB grade V-VI), and 2 patients with herpes zoster oticus (HB grade V-VI) underwent facial nerve decompression surgery between January 2008 and July 2014.

Varicella-zoster virus-specific cell-mediated immunity in Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

Laryngoscope 2016 Jan 15;126(1):E35-9. Epub 2015 Jul 15.

Division of Clinical Virology, Department of Microbiology and Infectious Disease, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe, Japan.

Objectives/hypothesis: The etiology of Ramsay Hunt syndrome (Hunt syndrome) is reactivation of latent varicella-zoster virus (VZV) in the geniculate ganglion of the facial nerve, leading to neuritis. Although the mechanism of the VZV reactivation is unclear, one possibility is that the reactivation involves a low level of VZV-specific cell-mediated immunity (CMI). The aim of this study was to clarify the characteristics of the VZV-specific CMI in Hunt syndrome compared to that in Bell's palsy, and to obtain clues to its role in the development of Hunt syndrome.
