Hemifacial spasm is a painless neurological condition characterized by persistent or brief involuntary contractions of the muscles innervated by the facial nerve. Vascular compression triggers the primary hemifacial spasm, and secondary hemifacial spasm comprises all other causes of facial nerve damage.
According to the study published in The Scientific World Journal in 2014, it is found that hemifacial spasm is prevalent in 9.8 per 100,000 individuals, and the average age for the onset of hemifacial spasm is 44 years. It is also reported that women and Asian populations have a high susceptibility to hemifacial spasm.
