Bony anomaly of Meckel's cave

Academic Article

Abstract

  • This study describes the seemingly rare occurrence of bone formation within the proximal superior aspect of Meckel's cave thus forming a bony foramen for the proximal trigeminal nerve to traverse. The anatomy of Meckel's cave is reviewed and the clinical potential for nerve compression from this bony anomaly discussed. © 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
