    Trigeminal involvement detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients is usually associated with trigeminal neuralgia (TN) or painless paraesthesia in the trigeminal distribution. Our aim is to review the incidence of trigeminal involvement on MRI in a series of...

    We report on clinical and instrumental findings of a multiple sclerosis (MS) patient with sudden right trigeminal neuralgia (TN). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), performed at TN onset, showed enlargement of both trigeminal nerves (TrN) at the root entry zone, with gadolinium enhancement of the...

    Trigeminal neuralgia is uncommon in children. Idiopathic type is less often seen than the secondary or symptomatic type. We report a 6-year-old girl with trigeminal neuralgia. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an arterial loop at the exit of the trigeminal nerve.

    We report the case of a patient diagnosed as having cluster-tic syndrome as the initial manifestation of multiple sclerosis (MS). The patient's headache bouts improved after treatment with antiepileptic drugs, steroids, and beta-interferon. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans showed a pontine...

    Trigeminal neuralgia in multiple sclerosis, kwon as symptomatic trigeminal neuralgia (STN), is present in 3% of multiple sclerosis patients. Despite the fact that a demyelinating plaque near the trigeminal system in the brainstem is accepted as the pathophysiological mechanism, it has been...
