Answer

This syndrome occurs when the geniculate ganglion is involved.

The clinical presentation includes a peripheral facial palsy, pain in the ear and face, and vesicles in the external ear canal.

Additional auditory and vestibular symptoms may be present. The vesicles are not present in all cases.
