Abstract

Paroxysmal neuralgia is relatively uncommon in children. Neuropathic orofacial pain is a challenge for the clinician, as no obvious dental pathology exists either clinically or radiographically. Dentist and physician should be able to recognize the characteristics of neuropathic pain so as to correctly diagnose these conditions hence avoid unnecessary dental intervention. This article reviews the conditions with paroxysmal neuralgia in children and available treatment strategies.
