Despite clinical similitude, there is a tendency to consider trigeminal pain in multiple sclerosis (MS) as a distinct condition. To evaluate clinical differences in trigeminal pain presentation in patients with and without underlying MS, we compared clinical characteristics of facial pain found in 15 consecutive MS patients with those reported by 13 consecutive subjects diagnosed with classical trigeminal neuralgia. The only significant difference between MS and non-MS neuralgic patients was… 
TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA IN MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS PATIENTS: A CLINICAL COMPARISON OF TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA IN PATIENTS WITH AND WITHOUT UNDERLYING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
TLDR
TN among MS patients has an onset at younger age but share the same pain characteristics and treatmentResponses with TN in the general population, as compared to non-MS patients.
Multiple Sclerosis and Trigeminal Neuralgia: A Well-Noted Association with Unknown Occurrence as a Presenting Symptom: Our Experience in Multi Centric Study
TLDR
A multi centric analysis of SM-patients affected by TN where the onset of symptomatology and a current literature analysis are presented to investigate the rate of debut of TN in SM patients to set up the correct diagnostic and therapeutic program.
Surgical outcomes of trigeminal neuralgia in patients with multiple sclerosis.
BACKGROUND Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is relatively frequent in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and can be extremely disabling. Surgical interventions are less effective for the treatment of
Trigeminal neuralgia and persistent idiopathic facial pain
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) and persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP) are two of the most puzzling orofacial pain conditions and affected patients are often very difficult to treat. TN is
Hypothalamic stimulation for trigeminal neuralgia in multiple sclerosis patients: efficacy on the paroxysmal ophthalmic pain
TLDR
Deep brain stimulation may be considered as an adjunctive procedure for treating refractory paroxysmal pain within the first trigeminal division so as to avoid the complication of corneal reflex impairment that is known to follow ablative procedures.
Trigeminal neuralgia – diagnosis and treatment
TLDR
This work focuses on genetics, unexplored etiological factors, sensory function, the neurosurgical outcome and complications, combination and neuromodulation treatment as well as development of new drugs with better tolerability for trigeminal neuralgia.
[Surgical treatment of trigeminal neuralgia in patients with multiple sclerosis].
TLDR
At the follow up of 3-5 years, no relapses of trigeminal pain syndrome were observed after the successful surgery and indications to this treatment should be made on the basis of MRI.

Trigeminal neuralgia in multiple sclerosis
TLDR
The onset of MS was later in the patients who had TN, and bilateral TN occurred more frequently than expected (in 14% of TN patients).
Trigeminal neuralgia due to multiple sclerosis: ultrastructural findings in trigeminal rhizotomy specimens
TLDR
Experimental studies indicate that this arrangement of demyelinated axons is conducive to both spontaneous impulse activity and ephaptic spread of excitation, and may account for key aspects of the pathogenesis of trigeminal neuralgia.

TLDR
Clinical observations and electrophysiological studies support the concept that demyelination and ephaptic spread of excitation underlie most, if not all, of these conditions.
