Glossopharyngeal neuralgia

From WikiLectures

Template:Heslo Glossopharyngeal neuralgia is a unilateral severe pain that occurs during the lingual-pharyngeal nerve . It is located at the root of the tongue and propagates to the ear. As with other neuralgia, a provocative moment is described here, namely swallowing. Neuralgia is caused by vascular compression during nerve spacing at the transition of the central myelin formed by oligodendroglia to peripheral myelin, which is formed by Schwann cells . Treatment begins with drug therapy, in case of failure, causal treatment is started - microvascular decompression (MVD).
