The seventh cranial nerve carries predominantly motor fibres but also supplies some autonomic innervation, sensation topart of ear,and taste to anterior two thirds of the tongue. It is responsible for lacrimation, tearing. But pathogenesis remain controversial. The paralysis causes disturbances among patients not only in social activities, life style, and psychological aspects but functional activities are also hindered like ability to eat, drink and speech.
