Isolated bilateral paralysis of the hypoglossal and recurrent laryngeal nerves (Bilateral Tapia's syndrome) after transoral intubation for general anesthesia.
Acta Anaesthesiol Scand. 2005 Jan; 49(1):98-9.AA

Abstract

Tapia's syndrome is due to extracranial involvement of the hypoglossal nerve and the recurrent laryngeal branch of the vagal nerve. The injury of these nerves is a rare complication of anesthetic airway management. We present a patient with a postoperative bilateral hypoglossal and recurrent laryngeal nerves palsy after uncomplicated orotracheal intubation. Corticosteroid therapy was started after diagnosis. Forty-eight hours later, the movements of the vocal cords started to recover and full recovery was achieved by the fourth day. Within 3 days, tongue mobility was gradually improved and the patient's symptoms resolved completely by 4 weeks.
