The Mysterious Episodes of Mary: A Case Study on Neuroanatomy

Episode 1

Mary Lazarro, a 44-year-old mother of two, made an appointment with her physician after experiencing a prolonged episode of numbness in her chin and lower lip. Two days prior to her appointment, she felt a prickling sensation like pins and needles at the right corner of her mouth. The sensation extended to her lower lip and chin. The examination revealed only a superficial hypoesthesia of the chin and lower lip (numb chin syndrome). There was no clinical evidence of palpable regional lymph nodes or other systemic or neurologic abnormalities. Her physician scheduled her for a CT scan of the affected region. These tests showed no abnormalities in the jaw, neck, or pharynx. The numbness and hypoesthesia spontaneously disappeared gradually over a few weeks.
