Hemifacial spasm as an entity was first described by Gowers in 1884. It represents a segmental myoclonus of muscles innervated by the facial nerve. Hemifacial spasm (HFS) generally begins with brief clonic movements of the orbicularis oculi and spreads over years to other facial muscles (corrugator, frontalis, orbicularis oris, platysma, zygomaticus).
