Trigeminal pain syndrome and its correlation to trigeminal nerve anatomic variations
Summary:
Trigeminal neuralgia is a long-term facial pain disorder. The characteristic of the
syndrome is the acute, lancinating and unilateral facial pain, mainly on the right side
of the face, in areas of the nerve distribution, with abrupt outburst and recession. It
occurs with a frequency of 4-5 cases per 100,000 population and is more common in
women over 50 years old. In this dissertation the anatomy of the trigeminal nerve will
be discussed and its anatomical relationship with the adjacent structures will be
emphasized. In addition, we will report information on fifth brain conjunctival
neuralgia syndrome (causes, pathogenesis, clinical picture, classification, diagnostic
approach, differential diagnosis and treatment). All of the above are very important, in
order to better understand the main topic of the work, i.e. the positive correlation
between the occurrence of neuralgia syndrome and anatomical variants of the nerve.
The information obtained for the present work came from online global databases,
such as Pubmed, GoogleScholar, Scopus, etc., medical books and magazines.
