Abstract

Trigeminal neuralgia and glossopharyngeal neuralgia are extremely painful conditions that typically afflict an older population. Distinct clinical characteristics guide the diagnosis of these unique syndromes. Treatment involves medication first and then surgical procedures if a patient is refractory to medicinal therapy. Antiepileptic medications are the most effective agents for these disorders.
