Description

The transverse cervical nerve is a branch from the cervical nerve plexus that arises from C2 and C3. It runs around the posterior side of the sternocleidomastoid runs below the external jugular vein. It penetrates the platysma to become ascending and descending branches. At this point, it supplies the lateral anterior regions of the neck.
