Parry-Romberg syndrome in Child
The tongue and salivary glands may be affected. Associated neurologic and ophthalmic involvement may include migraine headaches, seizures, trigeminal neuralgia, enophthalmos, and eyelid dysfunction.
PRS typically develops in the first or second decade and is more common in females. It occurs spontaneously with no known preceding exposures or genetic predisposition, and is believed to be mediated by autoimmune factors. This syndrome may have an insidious onset and is slowly progressive, ultimately stabilizing after 2-20 years.
