The injuries of axons of the lower motor neuron are called infranuclear

MRI has become the most useful diagnostic tool in the localisation, diagnosis and management of the nuclear and infranuclear
lesions of 3, 4, 6 cranial nerves.
The rough endoplasmic reticulum elongated into spiral form in the infranuclear
cytoplasm of the epithelial cells.
Clinical examination revealed an infranuclear
facial palsy on left side with associated bilateral postauricular and occipital region scalp swellings.
Areas more liable to the damage caused by stroke included supranuclear, nuclear, or infranuclear
This is a rare case of infranuclear
facial weakness in association with the one and one-half syndrome and eighth cranial nerve involvement in an immunocompromised patient, the etiology being tuberculosis.
Oscillopsia can occur with ataxic nystagmus; more rarely there are nuclear or infranuclear
III, IV or VI nerve palsies and gaze palsies.
At 24 weeks, enteroendocrine cells showed abundant accumulation of infranuclear
cytoplasmic granules, which were clearly demonstrable by Lead-Haematoxylin stain as dark blue granules against a greyish background (fig.5).
The patient also had infranuclear
facial paralysis on the right side (figure 1).
cytoplasm of principal cells contains mitochondria and membrane-delimited granules (Ramos & Dym, 1977), as well as smooth endoplasmic reticulum cisternae (Vicentini et al., 1985).
