Abstract

We report a case of 58-year-old female with scrub typhus who presented with Bell's palsy. Five days after the initiation of treatment, she developed complete peripheral facial palsy on the right side of her face. Oral corticosteroid, intravenous immunoglobulin, and acyclovir were administered but her Bell's palsy showed no signs of improvement even after one year of regular follow-up at the outpatient department.
