Brief description Bell’s palsy is the sudden onset of one-sided facial weakness of unknown cause. Patients cannot close their eyes and mouths properly; this interferes with eating and speaking. In adults, there is conclusive evidence that a short course of prednisolone, a steroid, can increase the number of patients who recover completely. This study will investigate at 10 centres in Australia and New Zealand whether prednisolone should be used in children as well.
