Two patients, a woman aged 34 and a man aged 56, were included in the study.) ey reported the existence of pain in the areas of the infraorbital nerve, which, over the last four to 2 ve years, aggravated by the stimuli of eating, laughing, and being touched. 2 ml of 0.5% lidocaine was administered to these patients six times percutaneously. It was observed that the ease of pain lasted until the local anesthesia lost its e 5 ect, and the pain resumed its original intensity. Neurolysis with 0.5 ml of 50% ethanol was applied to the infraorbital nerve.) is procedure was applied to the 2 rst patient twice and three times to the second.) ereafter, the patients were cured completely. For the treatment of idiopathic chronic infraorbital neuropathy, the neurolysis of the infraorbital nerve using 50% ethanol could be considered as an e 5 ective treatment alternative.
