Objective: Frey syndrome is one of the most common complications following parotid surgery. The current most common test for objectively diagnosing Frey syndrome is Minor starch-iodine test. This test might be insufficient because its results are not quantitative and therefore tests with quantitative results are investigated. The objective of this study was to investigate the efficiency of galvanic skin response (GSR) test, which measures changes in skin resistance, as a method with quantitative results for diagnosis of Frey syndrome.
