Complete separation of the facial and acoustic nerves is apparent, and a discrete nervus intermedius develops.
The nervus intermedius, which is smaller than the motor root of the facial nerve, passes into the brainstem between the acoustic nerve and the facial nerve motor root.
In 1976, the author described this condition in detail and proposed treatment by the excision of the nervus intermedius and excision of the geniculate ganglion via a middle cranial fossa approach.
