The objective of this article is to present a comprehensive examination of paediatric facial paralysis, encompassing its causes, prevalence, evaluation, diagnostic procedures, and potential treatment modalities. Facial paralysis refers to the condition when an individual has an inability to initiate the contraction of facial muscles, hence resulting in the inability to exhibit facial expressions. In general, the annual incidence rates of this phenomenon are 2.7 per 100,000 children under the age of 10 and 10.1 per 100,000 children aged 10 and above. Facial paralysis can be attributed to several etiological factors, leading to diverse results and necessitating varying treatment approaches. Corticosteroids and face treatment are commonly employed in medical care. However, in cases where facial palsy continues, the consideration of facial deformity surgery arises as a potential intervention to enhance facial symmetry, safeguard vision, and restore dynamic mobility.
