Cranial nerve disorder refers to an impairment of one of the twelve cranial nerves that emerge from the underside of the brain, pass through openings in the skull, and lead to parts of the head, neck, and trunk. These disorders can cause pain, tingling, numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the face including the eyes. If you have been diagnosed with a cranial nerve disorder, or believe you are experiencing these symptoms, the neurosurgeons at Penn Medicine can help.
