Hemifacial spasm is one of a number of neuromuscular disorders known as dystonias. The condition may begin with a facial twitch associated with pressure from a blood vessel or facial tumor or a facial nerve injury. The spasms usually progress from minor contractions, eventually affecting all muscles on one entire side of the face.
