Abstract

Diagnoses of lower cranial nerve lesions, especially of the facial nerve, are based upon neurophysiological tests. Electromyography and a variety of stimulation tests are used. Because of the petrous bone, an approach to the most common area of lesions is difficult. Only distal parts of the nerve can be investigated.
