gustatory hyperlacrimation ( crocodile tear syndrome )

The medical condition usually appears during recovery from Bell’s Palsy and affects the function of the facial nerve network

The root cause of the appearance of Crocodile Tears Syndrome has to do with the presence of a lesion in the geniculate ganglion. The lesion may appear in the cranial nerve system and cause a degree of paralysis in the muscles of the face. As the nerve fibers begin to recover, the presence of the lesion may lead to a malformation of a salivary gland into a tear gland.

During the process of attempting to chew food, this aberration in the regrowth of the glands may cause the damaged nerve glands to release tears. The individual who suffers from Crocodile Tears Syndrome has no control over the activity and may appear to cry throughout the meal.

Treatments for Crocodile Tears Syndrome are somewhat limited. One promising method of treating the condition is the administration of botulinum toxin, or Botox®. By injecting a small amount of botulinum toxin directly into the lacrimal gland, the amount of tears can be reduced or even eliminated.

psychological support also recommended cus most of these pts have social problems regarding their issue which lead to social withdrawal....

thanks .........
