Abstract

The diagnosis of blepharospasm is rarely considered in patients complaining of face pain or headache. This patient illustrates the importance of looking for blepharospasm in patients who present with headache or face pain, as her pain and blepharospasm were successfully treated with botulinum toxin type A injections.
