Abstract

 During last decades many researchers have focused on the conditions associated with BELL’S PALSY including DIABETES MELLITUS, hypertension, and viral infections. This study was performed to evaluate correlation of DIABETES MELLITUS and BELL’S PALSY and some relevant features not discussed in the literature in an Iranian population. The presence of DIABETES MELLITUS was evaluated in a total number of 275 subjects (75 patients with BELL’S PALSY and 200 control subjects). DIABETES MELLITUS was noted in 10 (13.3%) patients with BELL’S PALSY among which 6 case were diagnosed as new cases of diabetes. Previous history of BELL’S PALSY was present in 10.67% of the subjects with BELL’S PALSY. This study confirms the correlation of DIABETES MELLITUS and BELL’S PALSY for the first time in an Iranian population. We suggest screening tests for DIABETES MELLITUS to be a routine part in the management of patients with BELL’S PALSY, especially in developing countries.
