In many cases, patients were diagnosed as having Bell's palsy or trigeminal
neuralgia for years before being diagnosed with skin cancer.
Trigeminocervical complex (TCC) includes the pseudounipolar trigeminal
ganglion that has central afferent projections to the trigeminal
nucleus caudalis in the medullary spinal cord, and a peripheral projection, largely from the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal
ganglion, which innervates the cranial blood vessels and other cranial structures, including the pain-sensitive dura mater, via meningeal nociceptors.
VZV is known to reside in the trigeminal
ganglia, but should it also reside in the pterygopalatine ganglion which is responsible for innervating the lacrimal gland, tearing and conjunctival injection may ensue with reactivation of the virus [8, 10].
The MRI revealed a prominent cerebellar vein impinging on the lateral aspect of the left trigeminal
nerve (Figures 2(a) and 2(b)).
Cases where terminal branch neuralgia of the trigeminal
nerve is in question are quite rare, and they frequently appear in the form of continuous pain.
Box 1: Diagnostic criteria for classical trigeminal
The system delivers the low-level electrical stimulation to the branches of the trigeminal
nerve, which sends therapeutic signals to the parts of the brain thought to be involved in ADHD.

Upon inflation, the balloon compresses the trigeminal
ganglion, which induces a controlled injury leading to impaired ability of the nerve to transmit pain signals (6).
International Headache Society had recently proposed strict clinical criteria for trigeminal
neuralgia diagnosis and according to this, diagnosis only can be made when there are at least three attacks of unilateral facial pain occur fulfilling the following criteria such as (1) occurring in one or more divisions of the trigeminal
nerve, with no radiation beyond the trigeminal
distribution and (2) pain with at least, recurring in paroxysmal attacks lasting from a fraction of second to 2 minutes or severe intensity or electric shock-like, shooting, stabbing, or sharp in quality or precipitated by innocuous stimuli to the affected side of the face (9).
neuralgia is a neuropathic painful disorder that is brief in duration, electric shock-like in character, abrupt in onset and termination, and is restricted to the distribution of one or more division's of trigeminal
He was then diagnosed with trigeminal
neuralgia, a disease that converts every sensation felt on his face into agonizing pain.
