Facial palsy due to tuberculosis: the value of CT

  • P. J. Hadfield (a1), B. K. Shah (a1) and G. W. Glover (a1)

This is the best imaging modality available for identifying features suggestive of tuberculosis, the disease extent, presence of complications and demonstration of anatomy prior to surgery.
