Abstract

The glossopharyngeal nerve is a lower cranial nerve arising in the posterior cranial fossa. Although this nerve has multiple branches and functional components, it is often overlooked clinically. This ninth cranial nerve has a close relation to the vagus nerve both structurally and functionally. Although the glossopharyngeal nerve is primarily a sensory nerve, it also carries autonomic and somatic motor fibers. This chapter will review the detailed anatomy of the glossopharyngeal nerve.
