Abstract

Background: Tapia syndrome has been defined as extracranial palsy of recurrent laryngeal nerve and hypoglossal nerve leading to unilateral vocal cord and tongue palsy. Case Report: We report a case of atypical Tapia syndrome with recurrent laryngeal nerve, hypoglossal nerve and additional unilateral palatal palsy after orotracheal intubation in a patient undergoing transverse sinus stenting for idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
Conclusion: Occurrence of Tapia syndrome plus after orotracheal intubation is rare and unpredictable. Timely clinical suspicion can help in avoiding unnecessary investigations.
