Abstract

Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome (RHS) is an infectious cranial neuropathy due to reactivation of varicella zoster virus in the geniculate ganglion. In this case report, we present 2 cases of RHS with unilateral facial palsy, herpetic vesicles on the auricle and multiple cranial nerve involvement treated with intravenous and oral corticosteroids, antiviral agents and antibiotics. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment, as well as accompanying comorbidities are the primary factors associated with the prognosis of RHS.
