Weisenberg syndrome is an important facial pain syndrome due to its rarity as well as the difficulty in diagnosing the condition. It is often misdiagnosed as trigeminal neuralgia. The pain experienced in weisenberg syndrome is extremely disturbing for the patients and the condition is potentially fatal due to its association with cardiac syncope, arrhythmias and hypotension. We report a case of Weisenberg syndrome in a male patient presented with one sided throat pain with auricular involvement. We discuss the currently preferred surgical and non-surgical options in the treatment of the condition.
