  1. This was great. Never understood anatomy and reasons this area could affect cranial nerves that well. Thanks.

  2. good lecture

  3. Thanks for the great lecture. I have a friend who has a third nerve palsy as a result of leukeamic infiltration (now in palliative care) and this has really helped remind me of the anatomy (and also anticipate what potential symptoms to look out for).

  4. But where does the cavernous ultimately drain? Does it connect to the dural venous sinuses or have its own drainage system??
