Peripheral facial palsy caused by severe hypertension in a three-year-old boy
A three-year-old boy was admitted to the children’s ward with a newly developed peripheral facial palsy. First examination showed a high blood pressure (BP), but the measurement was initially dismissed as inaccurate. After a few days the boy developed a headache. The BP measure­ment was replicated, showing 180/120 mmHg, and the boy was treated with antihypertensive medication. Diagnostic imaging showed coarctation of the abdominal aorta and both renal arteries. The boy was finally treated with dilata­tion of the renal arteries. This case illustrates the importance of measuring the BP on children with facial palsy.
