• Facial nerve paralysis or symptoms of audiovestibular nerve dysfunction may be the first indication of one of the group of bone diseases known as the osteopetroses. We describe three such patients. The pathophysiology of these diseases and the treatment of the resulting symptoms of facial and audiovestibular nerve dysfunction are discussed.
