Abstract
diopathic facial nerve paralysis after surgery is not common but has clinical significance. We report a case of facial nerve paralysis in the immediate postanesthetic period after cervical spine surgery. A 41-year-old man with cervical herniated disc was scheduled for cervical laminectomy. After uneventful surgery, he suffered from left facial numbness and weakness. Imaging study and audiogram couldn't reveal any anatomic abnormality except Thornwaldt cyst. Conservative treatment with steroids and antivirals resolved his symptoms until 16th day after surgery
