Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome
Facial nerve disorders can cause weakness or paralysis on one or both sides of the face. Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is caused by a virus in the facial nerve. An infection of the geniculate ganglion of the facial nerve from the herpes zoster virus causes this serious condition. Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is a more severe cause of facial paralysis, and it requires exceptional patient care.
