Facial nerve disorder: a review of the literature : IJS Oncology
Localization requires an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, its blood supply, and the disease processes that affect it. The process of localization begins during history taking, is refined during the general and neurological examinations, and is re-assessed after any relevant diagnostic studies are completed. Lesions may go undetected on standard imaging studies unless the studies are specifically focused on the anatomical region hypothesized to be involved. Take the case of a patient with back pain and difficulty walking.

Symptoms and signs of cranial nerve pathology are common in internal medicine. They often develop in the context of a widespread neurologic disturbance, and in such situations, cranial nerve involvement may represent the initial manifestation of the illness. In other disorders, involvement is largely restricted to one or several cranial nerves; these distinctive disorders are reviewed in this chapter. Disorders of ocular movement are discussed in Chap.

The cranial nerves are susceptible to a number of special diseases, some of which do not affect the spinal peripheral nerves. For this reason alone they are considered separately. Certain of the cranial nerves and their disorders have already been discussed: namely, disorders of olfaction in Chap.
