Abstract

Facial paralysis due to cat scratch disease (CSD) has not been described previously. A case is reported where this self limiting benign condition presented in a child with a parotid lump and a lower motor neurone facial paralysis affecting the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve simulating a malignant tumour of the parotid gland. This case demonstrates a highly unusual presentation of CSD.
