Unvoluntary lidclosure with movement of the mouth is not so rare in aberrant regeneration of nerve fibers after Bell's palsy. There was no therapy until now. 10 patients with this disease were treated with botulinum-toxin injections into the orbicularis muscle. For an average time of 11 weeks after injection there was a complete absence of synkinesis, followed by a time of 9 weeks of less complaints. Thus 2-3 injections might be sufficient treatment within a year. Complications worth mentioning, especially due to the reduced force of lidclosure, were not observed.
