Arch Otolaryngol. 1983;109(3):145-151. doi:10.1001/archotol.1983.00800170011003

• An approach to the evaluation and the preferred methods of treatment of congenital facial paralysis is presented. The expected results from testing procedures and the limitations of their usefulness in acquired v developmental palsies are discussed. We recommend that the auditory brain-stem response test be included in the initial evaluation of patients with congenital facial paralysis.
