Özet

Facial palsy is a sporadic disease related to cold exposure, infections and psychogenic factors. In this case report, we present a 14 years old boy with familial facial palsy. Familial cases had been rarely reported. Risk of recurrence is increased at familial cases. Sporadic and familial cases must be treated with same approach. (Turk Arch Ped 2012; 47: 64-6)
