Résumé

Primary hemifacial spasm is a hyperactive cranial nerve syndrome. The cause is always a neurovascular compression, generally at the root exit zone from the brainstem. Its curative treatment is microvascular decompression, that may be performed as a first option, or secondarily when botulinum toxin injections fail.
