Photograph of a boy with right-sided facial paralysis

The boy developed a lower motor neuron facial palsy 5 days after a head injury. On grimacing, the left side of the face contracts normally. The right side shows no movement. The lips of the right side are passively drawn toward the left. Note the enlarged palpebral fissure on the right (Contributed by Dr. Sudhir Kothari MD).
