Granular cell tumor (GCT) is a relatively uncommon, usually benign lesion that often presents as a solitary, painless cutaneous or submucosal nodule. GCTs of the head and neck are not uncommon; howeve...
Facial nerve identification and preservation is a critical step in the resection of vestibular schwannoma. The use of intraoperative neurostimulation to positively identify the facial nerve along its ...
Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors are rare sarcomas of children and adolescents, and they are aggressive tumors with a high rate of local recurrence. Here we report a case of a primary cardiac ...
Facial nerve schwannomas are rare benign neoplasms. We report a case of a 60-year-old woman who initially presented with vestibular complaints. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a facial nerve...
The treatment paradigm of skull base surgery has been changed from radical tumor resection to maximal tumor removal while giving priority to functional preservation. Facial nerve schwannoma is one of ...
Preoperative evaluation of the precise localization of the intrapartotic facial nerve is essential for the ENT surgeon to assess the risk of nerve damage during parotid tumor excision, and...
The aim of the study is to evaluate concordance between the facial nerve's path in the parotid evaluated by radiologist in preoperatively and the facial nerve's path in the parotid evaluat...
This is a protocol to govern the prospective trial of facial nerve monitoring in patients undergoing parotidectomy with an eye towards interpreting if the facial nerve monitor provides use...

The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and salivary glands, and convey afferent information for taste from the anterior two-thirds of the tongue and for touch from the external ear.
Diseases of the facial nerve or nuclei. Pontine disorders may affect the facial nuclei or nerve fascicle. The nerve may be involved intracranially, along its course through the petrous portion of the temporal bone, or along its extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include facial muscle weakness, loss of taste from the anterior tongue, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation.
Traumatic injuries to the facial nerve. This may result in FACIAL PARALYSIS, decreased lacrimation and salivation, and loss of taste sensation in the anterior tongue. The nerve may regenerate and reform its original pattern of innervation, or regenerate aberrantly, resulting in inappropriate lacrimation in response to gustatory stimuli (e.g., "crocodile tears") and other syndromes.
Unusual tumor affecting any site of the body, but most often encountered in the head and neck. Considerable debate has surrounded the histogenesis of this neoplasm; however, it is considered to be a myoblastoma of, usually, a benign nature. It affects women more often than men. When it develops beneath the epidermis or mucous membrane, it can lead to proliferation of the squamous cells and mimic squamous cell carcinoma.
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
