A 28-year old Chinese man presented with right facial paralysis for 8 days. He felt that for first 3-days, his right face was swollen that subsided after starting oral valaciclovir and prednisolone by his general practitioner. He did not have any pain or swelling of the parotid gland and denied any ear symptom. He had developed right facial paralysis 7-years ago and left facial paralysis 2-years ago, which recovered considerably within a month on both occasions. He did not have any cardiovascular risk factors or immunocompromised state.
