SANTIN-AMO, J.M. et al. Isolated hypoglossal nerve palsy secondary to an atlantoccipital joint synovial cyst: Case report and literature review. Neurocirugía [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.4, pp.322-325. ISSN 1130-1473.

Hypoglossal nerve palsy is commonly associated with the involvement of other cranial nerves. His injury is rarely isolated. We present a patient in which paralysis is due to the presence of a "juxtafacet cyst" of the atlanto-occipital joint. We review the anatomy of the hypoglossal nerve, different therapeutic options, the differential diagnosis and papers published to date.

Keywords : Atlanto-occipital juxtafacet cyst; Hypoglosal nerve palsy; Hypoglosal anatomy.
