The electrophysiological tests are one of supportive tools for localizing the site of facial nerve lesion, and to determine the severity and prognosis of the injury. All study subjects were assessed clinically by Sunnybrook facial nerve grading score SBS and electrophysiologically by electroneurography ENoG , blink reflex BR , and electromyography EMG ; first evaluation was within 7th to10th day from onset, the second evaluation was done at 20th day, and the follow-up visit was after 1 month to assess the clinical grading system SBS. At 1 month, 20 patients The combination of both tests BR and ENoG, along with clinical findings can be considered a good indication in the acute phase of BP for the possibility to develop palsy residua.
