Pain is one of the most ignored clinical symptoms in resource limited country such as Ethiopia. Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is one of the most painful medical illnesses known to human. Very little was reported about TN from the sub Saharan Africa (SSA), especially from Ethiopia. We aimed to study the demographic, clinical characteristics, and risk factors of TN in sixty-one patients at two public and two private health facilities in Addis Ababa Ethiopia. These data will be vital to researchers and clinicians interested in knowing the pattern of TN in SSA in order to compare and contrast with similar data from the west.
