• 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.
