Abstract: Idiopathic facial nerve palsy, known also as Bell’s palsy, is a common condition encountered in everyday otolaryngological practice, and although the prognosis is fair, in case of incomplete recovery remains a marked physical disability for the patient. Despite of the development of diagnostic techniques, in most cases it is still impossible to point the etiologic factor, and therapy has to remain on empirical treatment.
Material and method: In this article the review of literature on pathogenesis and therapy of idiopathic facial nerve palsy, published in years 2006–2016 was performed, presenting the articles with direct implications for everyday clinical practice.
Results: According to presented articles, the importance of usage of combined treatment with steroids and antivirals, extended diagnostics for the presence of metabolic disorders(IGT) and surgical treatment with early facial nerve decompression in cases with severe degeneration of the fibers or recurrent paralysis were emphasized
