Bell's palsy, also known as idiopathic facial nerve palsy, is a weakness of the muscles on one side of the face caused by the compression of the facial/cranial nerve, with no known underlying pathological cause. Such a condition typically manifests in a unilateral paralysis of the face. In rare cases, both sides of the face can be affected. Bell’s palsy is characterised by its rapid onset, reaching clinical peak within 72 hours. Most patients fully recover from Bell’s palsy.

This report provides the current incident population for Bell’s palsy across 15 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Brazil, Japan, China, Turkey, Mexico, Denmark, Egypt and South Korea) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current incidence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.

Providing a value-added level of insight from the analysis team at Black Swan, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of Bell’s palsy have been quantified and presented alongside the overall incidence figures. These sub-populations within the main disease are also included at a country level across the 10-year forecast snapshot.

Main symptoms and co-morbidities for Bell’s palsy include:
  • Rapid onset of mild weakness to total paralysis on one side of the face
  • Facial droop
  • Drooling
  • Increased sensitivity to sound on the affected side
  • Headache
  • Synkinesis (involuntary facial movement)
  • Decrease in taste sensations
  • Pain around the jaw
  • Pain behind the ear on the affected side
  • Change in volume of tears/saliva that the individual may produce
This report is built using data and information sourced from the proprietary Epiomic patient segmentation database. To generate accurate patient population estimates, the Epiomic database utilises a combination of several world class sources that deliver the most up to date information form patient registries, clinical trials and epidemiology studies. All of the sources used to generate the data and analysis have been identified in the report.
