Abstract

The literature lacks a comprehensive review of the petrosal nerves, which often have a complicated course and nomenclature. The medical literature was reviewed comprehensively for information regarding the anatomy, pathology, and surgery of the petrosal nerves. The terminology and anatomy of the petrosal nerves are often complicated. Our review found multiple nomenclatures used in the description of these structures. Information regarding the petrosal nerves may assist those who observe or operate at or near the skull base. To our knowledge, this is the first comprehensive review of these structures.
