This article reflects on the surgical anatomy of the MMN and cervical nerve in relation to danger zones during lymphadenectomy. The authors review the anatomy of the smile.

Here we present a simple method for clinical differentiation between these two prognostically different injuries, allowing appropriate reassurance, ongoing therapy & management.
