“Keep in mind that a cranial nerve deficit does not always indicate a brain-stem disease. Cranial nerve deficits can be seen with a cranial nerve neuropathy (e.g. trigeminal neuritis, idiopathic facial paralysis) or a neuromuscular problem (e.g. pharyngeal paresis associated with myasthenia gravis).”
