Infratrochlear Nerve

Adel K. Afifi, MD, MS

Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed


This nerve may anastomose with a branch from the upper division of the oculomotor nerve. In one case, a branch from a communication between the supra- and infratrochlear nerves pierced the orbital plate, ran beneath the dura, pierced the frontal bone, and supplied the overlying skin.
