Ramsay Hunt syndrome is known to be accompanied with cranial polyneuropathy very occasionally. We reviewed our experience to analyze the clinical manifestations and prognosis of these cases. 
Ramsay Hunt syndrome revisited–emphasis on Ramsay Hunt syndrome with multiple cranial nerve involvement
TLDR
The Ramsay Hunt syndrome is characterized by herpetic lesions combined with peripheral facial nerve palsy and is caused by a reactivation of the varicella zoster virus. Expand
Herpetic cranial polyneuritis mimicking brain stem infarction—an atypical presentation of Ramsay Hunt syndrome
TLDR
A case of varicella zoster virus cranial polyneuritis with bulbar symptoms mimicking bulbar stroke, requiring percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy feeds, with significant clinical and radiological recovery over 1 year is illustrated. Expand
A Case of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome with Cranial Polyneuropathy
TLDR
A case of a patient with clinical evidence of Ramsay Hunt syndrome involving the cranial nerves VI, VII, and VIII, where the patient, a 66-year-old woman, showed left facial palsy associated with vesicular eruptions on her left auricle, impaired gaze to left side, and left hearing loss. Expand
Cranial Polyneuropathy in Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Manifesting Severe Pharyngeal Dysphagia: a Case Report and Literature Review
TLDR
Dysphagia caused by the involvement of multiple cranial nerves in Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS) is rare and the prognosis seems favorable and swallowing rehabilitation therapy could be beneficial for tube removal. Expand
Ramsay Hunt Syndrome: A unique clinical presentation in young patient- Case report and literature review
The Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS), also called as Herpes Zoster Oticus, as well as, Shingles of the geniculate ganglion, is caused by reactivation of Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) in the geniculateExpand
Ramsay Hunt syndrome presenting with abducens nerve palsy followed by V , VII , VIII , IX , and X nerve palsies
Ramsay Hunt syndrome, associated with varicella zoster virus infection is characterized by herpes zoster oticus, facial nerve palsy, and cochleovestibular symptoms. Ramsay Hunt syndrome associatedExpand
Ramsay Hunt syndrome with multiple cranial neuropathies in a liver transplant recipient.
TLDR
A case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome is reported in an immune compromised patient, with classic facial nerve palsy and ipsilateral ear vesicles, which rapidly evolved to involve multiple cranial neuropathies, and improved dramatically with antiviral therapy and corticosteroids. Expand
A case study of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in conjunction with cranial polyneuritis
TLDR
Due to misdiagnosis resulting in delayed treatment, peripheral facial paralysis was left as the main sequelae, while other symptoms responded quickly to treatment, including targeted antiviral therapy. Expand
Herpes zoster laryngitis accompanied by Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
TLDR
The most common presentation of herpes zoster in the head and neck region is called Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS), which rarely accompanies multiple cranial neuropathy, and herein, 2 additional cases are presented and the clinical outcome of cranial polyneuropathy is reported. Expand
Polyneuritis cranialis from varicella zoster virus reactivation
TLDR
A 68yearold man with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus and stage II chronic kidney disease, presented to hospital with a 24hour history of rightsided facial paralysis and 3 days of horizontal diplopia, initially thought to be otitis externa. Expand

Ramsay Hunt syndrome presenting as a cranial polyneuropathy.
TLDR
A case of a Ramsay Hunt syndrome with involvement of V, VII, and VIII cranial nerves is presented. Expand
Ramsay Hunt syndrome: a cranial polyneuropathy.
TLDR
It is suggested that Ramsay Hunt syndrome and Bell's palsy are different clinical manifestations of the same disease and Hunt's classification and the idiopathy of bell's palsies are probably no longer tenable. Expand
Audiological manifestations of Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
TLDR
A retrospective review of the audiological manifestations of 186 patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, measuring their hearing loss patterns, hyperacusis, tinnitus, herpetic rash, facial paralysis, pain and vertigo, found prognosis for eventual hearing recovery is excellent. Expand
Ramsay Hunt syndrome in children
TLDR
It is suggested that vaccination can prevent or reduce the occurrence of Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which is relatively common in older children. Expand

TLDR
It is speculated that spreading of reactivated VZV caused local meningitis and multiple cranial nerve involvement as well as the second cervical nerve. Expand

TLDR
A 58-year-old rheumatic woman suffering from vertigo, right earache, and sore throat suffered right-side facial palsy, hoarseness, and swallowing difficulty on day 5, and was treated with antiviral medication and steroids. Expand
An extremely unusual presentation of varicella zoster viral infection of cranial nerves mimicking Garcin syndrome
TLDR
VZV infection should be considered even in patients who show unilateral multiple cranial neuropathy mimicking Garcin syndrome because it is treatable, and the improvement of facial palsy and swallowing difficulty was delayed. Expand
Herpes Zoster-Varicella Infections in Immunosuppressed Patients
TLDR
Herpes zoster infections (localized and disseminated) are more frequent and severe in immunosuppressed patients than in unaffected patients and are associated with severe complications. Expand
Ramsay-Hunt syndrome complicated by unilateral multiple cranial nerve palsies
TLDR
An 82-year-old man who developed a hoarse voice, decreased hearing, difficulties in swallowing, nasal reflux and left facial droopiness five days after the onset of ear pain and fever is reported, in which the HZ oticus infection was complicated by a multiple unilateral palsy of the lower cranial nerves. Expand
[A case of Ramsey Hunt syndrome with multiple cranial nerve paralysis and acute respiratory failure].
TLDR
This case was complicated by lower cranial nerve paralysis and acute respiratory failure, which is very rare, and the patient was discharged with no sequelae except mild hoarseness. Expand
