Author information

Department of Internal Medicine and Otolaryngology, University Hospital, Amsterdam, Holland.


In an effort to refine and amplify the basis for clinical prognosis in Bell's palsy, 14 factors in a clinical study were analysed. From the results, it is still impossible to make a certain prognosis of recovery in the individual patient. However, it is obvious that, based on degree of paresis on assessment, and to a lesser degree the MAP value, at least a quantitative statement can be made.
