AAN 2023 | Differentiating trigeminal neuralgia from other orofacial pain syndromes

Marcela Romero-Reyes, DDS, PhD, University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), Baltimore, MD, analyzes the diagnostic challenges in differentiating trigeminal neuralgia from other orofacial pain syndromes. Neurologists should consider dental orthodontic problems, lesions compressing the branches of the trigeminal nerve, Eagle syndrome, temporomandibular disorders, persistent idiopathic facial pain or persistent idiopathic dentoalveolar pain, and primary headache disorders in the differential diagnosis. In the context of each condition, dr Romero-Reyes elucidates their characteristic symptoms, diagnostic criteria, and potential overlaps with trigeminal neuralgia. This interview took place at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting 2023 in Boston, MA.
