Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome(MRS) is a rare disorder, having a symptom triad of recurrent facial palsy, orofacial swelling and fissured tongue(lingua plicata). This disorder is usually recurrent or progressive, and monosymptomatic or oligosymptomatic forms have been reported to be more common than classic forms. Generally, MRS occurs in young adults at the end of the second decade of life and incidence of the disease in childhood is known to be very low. Although the clinical manifestation of MRS in children is similar to that in adults, early diagnosis and management is essential to avoid long-lasting functional disorders and psychological problems. We experienced MRS in a 13 year old boy with a history of recurrent facial palsy. We report this case with review of related literature.
