Cranial nerves – facts

CN which is the smallest -- oTrochlear n.
CN which enters cerebrum directly - olfactory nerve

CN with longest intracranial (subarachnoid) course -- trochlear n
CN which emerges posterior to brain stem- trochlear nerve
CN with dorsal exit -- trochlear n.
CN which is the largest and thickest -- trigeminal n.
CN which is largest -- trigeminal nerve
CN with longest extracranial course --vagus n.
CN having longest intraosseous course -- facial nerve
CN with longest ( intradural )course - abducent nerve
CN passing through cavernous sinus -- abducent nerve
CN involved in raised intracranial tension -- abducent nerve
Abducent nerve has the longest intra-cranial INTRADURAL course!!
