The distribution of the enhancement corresponds anatomically to the extrinsic perineural vascular plexus of the facial nerve rather than to a breakdown of the blood-nerve barrier. This enhancement is more prominent in the region of the geniculate ganglion.
Malignant tissue may also contain GLUT-1.[4,5] Peripheral nerves, which like the brain depend heavily on glucose for metabolism, have a blood-nerve barrier in which GLUT-1 also plays a major role, and the perineurium of these fibers has been demonstrated to stain intensely with antibodies to GLUT-1 by immunohistochemical techniques.[6-9] Perineurial staining has been used to assess the presence of tumor invasion of nerves.[10]
Accumulation of endoneurial oedema is a result of damage to the blood-nerve barrier, which is consisted of the endoneurial blood vessels and the inner cellular layer of the perineurium.
It was reported that the maximum accumulation of endoneurial oedema was during the second week following the traumatic injury to the peripheral nerve, which coincides with the maximum increased permeability of the blood-nerve barrier (Pedowitz et al.).
