Abstract:Trigeminal neuralgia (TGN) in the paediatric population is seldom reported and often not considered in the differential diagnosis of paediatric craniofacial pain. Even less common are cerebellopontine angle (CPA) lesions causing TGN in paediatric patients. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a CPA arachnoid cyst causing TGN in a paediatric case.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
