Does anyone happen to know what the Hungarian name for Bell's palsy might be? It's a medical condition where the muscles on one side of the face don't work properly, a kind of paralysis.

Thanks in advance.

    There are several names for it but I think the most common is arcideg-bénulás. The other possibilities I found are: Bell-féle bénulás, faciális parézis.

    For the present you are right but I can remember old village women from my childhood who called every assymetric face problem 'arcidegzsába', they didnt make a difference. They still also used words like 'gutaütés', 'szélütés', 'szélütötte', 'nyavalyatörős' :) not 'infarktus' or 'stroke' (bbbrrrrr...).

    Yes, but when you do a translation, you usually have to be exact (as opposed to old village women). :)
