You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 34 year old man presents with multiple episodes of intense, sharp, right-sided facial pain which last for about a minute and occur around ten times a day; these first started 2 months ago.
The pain is worst over the nasolabial groove and is precipitated by brushing his teeth, shaving, washing his face, eating, and talking.
His medical and surgical histories are unremarkable.
