Transient hypoglossal nerve palsy after transoralintubation for general anesthesia

Young Jin Choi, Jin Hee Lee, Young Duck Shin


Hypoglossal nerve palsy induces palsy in the ipsilateral lingual muscles, resulting in tongue deviation and articulation disorder. It is a rare condition that may stem from a variety of causes. Therefore, it is important to consider the possible causes of hypoglossal nerve palsy related to surgery or anesthesia, including intubation, the surgical positions, and mask ventilation during recovery.
