A 61-year-old man was seen in the neurosurgery clinic because of facial pain. The pain had begun eight months earlier and was characterized by sharp paroxysms over the left side of the face that were brought on by the patient's eating or touching his moustache; there was a dull, throbbing pain in the same area. The neurologic examination was normal. A diagnostic and therapeutic procedure was performed.
