All of the following glands have secreto- motor supply by facial nerve except a) Nasal gland b) Lacrimal gland c) Submandibular gland d) Parotid gland Answer: Parotid gland Explanation: Facial nerve: Secreto-motor to all glands in head EXCEPT Parotid Parotid gland: Parasympathetic secreto-motor supply arises from the glosso-pharyngeal nerve. The nerves reach the gland via the tympanic branch, the lesser petrosal nerve, the otic ganglion, and the Auriculo-temporal nerve. Submandibular gland and Sublingual Gland: Parasympathetic secreto-motor supply is from the facial nerve via the chorda tympani, and the submandibular ganglion. The postganglionic fibers pass directly to the gland. Nasal gland and lacrimal gland: Parasympathetic secreto-motor supply is from the facial nerve via greater petrosal nerve.
