In this case, it may be possible that the thalamus and the internal capsule may get involved initially as a result of involvement of right middle cerebral artery, prior to involvement of encephalon by the virus and resulting into the dense hemiplegia and facial nerve palsy
Although the typical presentation of facial nerve palsy
in a documented case of sarcoidosis is not a diagnostic dilemma, more atypical presentations such as hydrocephalus with increased intracranial pressure in a previously healthy patient can be a challenge.
Despite the characteristic of extensive destruction of the temporal bone in this disease, the facial nerve is surprisingly resistant to destruction, and facial nerve palsy
Although her facial nerve palsy
and hearing loss persisted, she otherwise responded well and did not require surgery.
The vast majority of cases arise in the parotid gland, where they usually manifest as a rapidly growing mass, often with ulceration and facial nerve palsy
Painless otorrhea, multiple tympanic perforations, early severe hearing loss, abundant granulation, bony necrosis, (2) whitish necrosis tissue of the middle ear mucosa, (3) facial nerve palsy
