Cesàro's Theorem

The three points determined on three coplanar edges of a tetrahedron by the external bisecting planes of the opposite dihedral angles are collinear. Furthermore, this line belongs to the plane determined by the three points in which the remaining three (concurrent) edges of the tetrahedron are met by the internal bisecting planes of the respectively opposite dihedral angle.
