A 60-year-old man was referred with a 3-year history of right-sided facial pain. The pain, which was described as ‘stabbing’, was in the cheek. It had been occasional but had now increased in frequency such that he was experiencing several episodes a day. The pain was triggered by anything that touched the face and when he ate or brushed his teeth. The severity was such that he could not eat or talk normally.
