Facial Palsy Resources

Thank you for your interest in learning about facial palsy caused by Lyme disease.

Lyme disease can, in some cases, impact the facial nerves and cause facial palsy.  It is important that facial paralysis caused by Lyme disease is diagnosed promptly to minimise any delay in receiving antibiotic treatment.

The resource above explains the experiences of children with facial nerve paralysis caused by Lyme disease. It also provides details on diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing support for patients.

The resource above is a summarised version of a longer paper. You can learn more by accessing the full paper here.
