APARICIO, Carlos Eduardo. Idiopathic trigeminal neuropathy in a poodle. Rev. Med. Vet. [online]. 2010, n.20, pp. 95-100. ISSN 0122-9354.
A seven years old, male poodle is examined presenting acute mandibular paralysis (dropped jaw), drooling and difficulty for the apprehension and chewing; not evidence of another alteration of cranial nerves. The muscular biopsy rules out a myositis of masticatory muscles. The disorder is resolved completely in 3 weeks confirming diagnosis of idiopathic trigeminal neuropathy.
