Melkersson-Rosenthal (M-R) syndrome consists of a triad of (1) recurrent peripheral facial nerve paralysis which develops alternatively on both sides of face, (2) non-inflammatory facial edema, and (3) furrowed tongue.

Since the cause of M-R syndrome is unknown, various forms of therapy have been tried, but there were no conclusive evidence that they altered the course of the disease.

A 27-year-old female and a 44-year-old male patient with recurrent facial nerve paralysis were diagnosed with M-R syndrome.

We report the two cases of M-R syndrome with the brief review of literatures.

Key Words: Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome, Recurrent facial nerve paralysis
