We report 2 cases of the same family who presented with alternating recurrent episodes of peripheral facial palsy, associated in one case with ipsilateral trigeminal neuropathy and preceded in the other case by incomplet Miller-Fisher syndrom. All laboratory and radiological investigations were normal except the electrodiagnostic tests. The etiopathogenetic mecanisms implied and the distinction between familial recurrent Bell's palsies and recurrent cranial nerve palsies are discussed.
