Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a rare and debilitating craniofacial pain syndrome often caused by vascular compression of the trigeminal nerve. Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) has been shown to offer a less invasive yet effective treatment method for pain reduction in TN. In this case report, we observed radiological evidence of resolved neurovascular compression after 11 years for a patient with recur-rent TN and prior GKRS.
