The facial nerve is the seventh of the 12 cranial nerves. Bell’s palsy is the most common medical problem involving the seventh cranial nerve. It is an impairment of the function of the facial nerve that causes weakness of one side of the face. Bell’s palsy is usually a temporary condition and is not considered a threat to overall health.

Facial nerve hemangiomas tend to occur at the geniculate ganglion or in the IAC, with facial nerve repair most often required for tumors at the geniculate ganglion. In a report of 23 facial nerve hemangiomas, 47% required facial nerve repair. 18 Most of the repaired nerves achieved a House-Brackmann grade III or IV by 1 year or more after surgery ( Table 30-2 ).

Examination of Facial Nerve (7th Cranial Nerve) The anatomy of facial nerve has already been discussed in detail earlier. It is essential to have proper knowledge of anatomy to understand this section of clinical examination of facial nerve. The facial nerve (VII) and vestibulocochlear nerve (VIII) both enter the internal auditory canal in the temporal bone. The facial nerve then reaches the side of the face by using the stylomastoid foramen, also in the temporal bone. Its fibers then spread out to reach and control all of the muscles of facial expression.
