Lesser occipital nerve - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (287 words)
The lesser occipital nerve or small occipital nerve is a spinal nerve arising between the first and second cervical vertebrae, along with the greater occipital nerve.
Near the cranium it perforates the deep fascia, and is continued upward along the side of the head behind the auricula, supplying the skin and communicating with the greater occipital, the great auricular, and the posterior auricular branch of the facial.
This branch is occasionally derived from the greater occipital nerve.
