Melkersson–Rosenthal syndrome (MRS) is a rare clinical syndrome. The onset of illness usually occurs in the second decade of life. It is characterized by idiopathic facial paralysis and/or fissured tongue with oro-facial swelling, mainly lip edema. The diagnosis is mainly clinical as the biochemical marker is not ascertained. The isolated facial palsy can mimic various other clinical entities including Bell palsy. The treatment guidelines for MRS are not mentioned in the literature, due to the paucity of randomized clinical trials, which could not happen because of its rarity. However, steroids are effective in this condition. This case report highlights the case of MRS with the typical triad of features, which is quite rare.
