Although various cases of neuralgia and its treatments have been reported, not enough evidence is present to recommend a single type of treatment as the most effective. The patient we have dealt with experienced significant interferences in his daily life due to chronic allodynia, but the symptom could not be resolved via previously reported treatments. We report a case of which a patient who presented infraorbital neuralgia after trauma was successfully treated by a novel treatment strategy. The patient was treated by applying infraorbital nerve block and pulsed radiofrequency cautery side by side. Through this report, we evaluate proper prevention and treatment strategies for patients who develop infraorbital neuralgia through similar etiologies.
