Neuropathic pain is nonadaptive and does not contribute to healing, such as would be the case with pain attributable to tissue inflammation, where pain results in adaptive behaviors, such as use limitation, guarding, rest, and avoidance, which contribute to healing. Trigeminal neuralgia is a debilitating, lancinating, and excruciating orofacial pain illness. Tic douloureux is the other popular name of trigeminal neuralgia because of the facial expression accompanying the episodic pain. Here we report a case of trigeminal neuralgia of infraorbital and greater palatine nerve in a 54-year-old female patient. Peripheral neurectomy was done under local anesthesia as the treatment.
