Abstract

The authors describe a rare case of unilateral hypoglossal nerve palsy caused by an intraneural ganglion cyst. Three similar cases have been reported with pathological classification still under consideration. One case was classified as an intraneural ganglion cyst and 2 cases were classified as atlantooccipital joint synovial cysts.
