Abstract

Cranial nerves are susceptible to compression by intracranial tumours and other space-occupying intracranial lesions, besides being vulnerable to damage in head injuries. A systematic and comprehensive assessment of cranial nerve function is an essential part of the clinical examination of any neurological patient. Cranial nerve dysfunction may be an important pointer to the nature and location of an intracranial lesion.
