  • CONCLUSION: The course of the abducent nerve was reliably identified using the 3D fast asymmetrical spin-echo MR protocol and a histologically proven arachnoid envelope around the petroclival segment of the nerve was shown as CSF evagination into Dorello's canal by MR imaging [9].
  • Speech and communication are major problems for children with Moebius syndrome, a congenital anomaly that includes facial and abducens nerve paralysis and, often, other cranial nerve deficits [15].
  • Possible causes of strabismus considered were an adaptation to genetically determined abnormal visual pathways related to lack of pigment, abnormalities of the abducent nerves and mechanical restricting conditions of the medial rectus muscles [16].
