At least three separate neurological syndromes carry the name of Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS), their only connection being that they were all first described by James Ramsay Hunt (1872–1937):
- Ramsay Hunt syndrome type I, also called Ramsay Hunt cerebellar syndrome, is a rare form of cerebellar degeneration which involves myoclonic epilepsy, progressive ataxia, tremor, and a dementing process.
- Ramsay Hunt syndrome type II is the reactivation syndrome of herpes zoster in the geniculate ganglion. It has variable presentation which may include a lower motor neuron lesion of the facial nerve, deafness, vertigo, and pain.
- Ramsay Hunt syndrome type III is a less commonly referenced condition, an occupationally induced neuropathy of the deep palmar branch of the ulnar nerve. It is also called Hunt's disease or Artisan's palsy.
