Abstract

PURPOSE: To present three cases of chronic infraorbital nerve hyperesthesia relieved by surgical decompression of the infraorbital nerve. METHODS: Retrospective chart review. RESULTS: We identified three cases of chronic hyperesthesia of the infraorbital nerve. Two cases were related to previous blunt orbital trauma, whereas the third was associated with a long-standing anophthalmic socket with numerous previous surgeries. In each case, patients had dramatic relief of infraorbital nerve hyperesthesia and pain after surgical decompression of the infraorbital nerve. CONCLUSIONS: Surgical decompression of the infraorbital nerve can provide significant symptomatic improvement in patients with chronic infraorbital nerve hyperesthesia secondary to nerve compression.
