Crocodile Tears Syndrome (Bogorad's Syndrome) (Gustatolacrimal Reflex) (Paroxysmal Lacrimation) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy The crocodile tears syndrome involves spontaneous tearing in parallel with the normal salivation of eating. The crocodile tears syndrome occurs most often following facial paralysis when nerve fibers destined for a salivary gland are damaged and by mistake regrow into a tear gland. Also called Bogorad's syndrome, gustatolacrimal reflex, and paroxysmal lacrimation. I am not sure crocodiles actually have tears, but if they do they are probably big fat one.
