Flushing of the Right Cheek When Eating

Right Cheek Flushing When Eating

A 2-year-old boy who was born at full term and had been delivered with the assistance of forceps presented to the otolaryngology clinic with an 18-month history of flushing on his right cheek that appeared when he ate.

Flushing appeared when he ate strawberries in the clinic and was not associated with pain, pruritus, sweating, or respiratory symptoms. The findings from the remainder of the examination were normal.

What is the underlying condition?
