Abstract

Trigeminal neuralgia is a disorder of unknown etiology characterized by sudden, recurrent, short paroxysms of high intensity facial pain occurring in later life(50-60 years) and females are affected more than males. Right-sided facial affliction predominates with the maxillary nerve most commonly involved. The condition is generally progressive with the pain worsening at increasing frequency. Medical management is usually the first option. In refractory cases, surgical modalities can be considered. This review gives a brief knowledge about the pathogenesis and management of trigeminal neuralgia
