Cranial nerve IX
and X are the most common cranial nerve to be involved followed by VI and III cranial nerve as shown in table-III.
Postsurgically, the patient exhibited deficits in cranial nerve IX
, X, and XI function; otherwise, her recovery went well.
The dorsal surface of the cranium was removed to expose the left lateral surface of the medulla between the posterior ramus of the eighth cranial nerve ([VIII.sub.p]) and cranial nerve IX
, near the rostral and mid-region of the DON, respectively.
Causes of symptomatic glossopharyngeal neuralgia include cerebellopontine angle tumors, nasopharyngeal carcinomas, carotid aneurysms, tonsillar abscesses, neurilemmomas of cranial nerve IX
, multiple sclerosis, and Eagle syndrome.
