Abstract

A man presenting with sleep apnoea was found to have a haemangioblastoma at the cervico-medullary junction. The associated hydrocephalus and syringomyelia resolved after excision of the tumour. Postoperatively the patient developed transient bilateral glossopharyngeal neuralgia, presumably due to surgical damages to the tractus solitarius. To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case with transient bilateral glossopharyngeal neuralgia following resection of a haemangioblastoma of the cervico-medullary junction.
