Trigeminal neuropathy is an infrequent condition, usually limited to the sensorial component of the nerve, and it is one of the most common neurologic manifestations of mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD). However, to the best of our knowledge, no cases have been reported with MCTD presenting as trigeminal sensory and motor neuropathy. Herein, we report a 28-year-old female with unilateral trigeminal sensory–motor neuropathy who presented with numbness over the distribution of the right trigeminal region and right masseter atrophy. We also reviewed the literature for trigeminal neuropathy associated with MCTD.
