Abstract

Ipsilateral extracranial palsy of the hypoglossus and vagus nerve is a rare complication of intubation. This is a case report of a 50-year-old male with unilateral palsy of the hypoglossus and vagus nerve after reoperation for a mandibular fracture. The patient underwent logopaedic treatment, and ten months after the operation there was significant but not complete remission of symptoms. Videostroboscopy revealed near-normalisation of vocal cord movement.
