The trigeminal ganglion gives off three branches. One of them is the ophthalmic nerve, which again splits into three branches: the lacrimal, the frontal, and the nasociliary nerves. The other two branches are the maxillary and mandibular nerves. In this chapter the authors discuss all the branches of these nerves as well as the nerves of the cervical plexus. The innervation of the skin of the head, the eye, nose, mouth, teeth, tongue, ear and larynx are discussed in detail. Finally the authors outline the sonoanatomy of infraorbital and greater occipital nerves, the superficial cervical plexus and that of the eye and orbit.
