"Although we could not show that Bell?s palsy is related to any specific viral infection, it may be that viral or other diseases may predispose the patient to vascular lesions. Stress, fever and analgesics may all change the distribution of blood flow, while alterations of the levels of proteins in the blood may change its viscosity or coagulability [11]. These factors, acting alone or together, may be responsible for sludging and infarction in certain areas, e.g., in the vasa nervorum, resulting in the clinical picture of Bell?s palsy."
