In recent decades, a growing number of structural neuroimaging studies of grey matter (GM) in trigeminal neuralgia (TN) have reported inconsistent alterations. We carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis to identify consistent and replicable GM volume abnormalities in TN patients. Our findings provide a thorough profile of GM volume alterations in TN patients and constitute robust evidence that aberrant GM volumes in the brain regions regulating and moderating sensory-motor and affective processing may play an important role in the pathophysiology of TN.
