We report two cases of lower cranial nerve palsies (XII in case 1, IX–X–XII in case 2) associated with abnormalities of the internal carotid artery at the base of the skull. In case 1 a limited dissection of the carotid wall produced both paresis of the hypoglossal nerve and Horners syndrome by compression of the nerve trunk against the base of the skull and stretching of the periarterial sympathetic fibres respectively. In case 2 we speculate that a narrow angled kinking of the internal… Expand

TLDR
To diagnose normal pupillary function, pupils need to be isocoric and react bilaterally equally to light and anisocoria indicates a problem of the efferent pupillary pathway. Expand
Arterial injuries: a sonographic approach.
TLDR
This article emphasizes the various presentations of arterial emergencies, which include acute arterial occlusions; excessive bleeding; and hematoma formation caused by penetrating arterial wall injuries, pseudoaneurysms, and arteriovenous fistulas. Expand

TLDR
Palsies of the lower cranial nerves caused by a compressive pathological carotid artery are not common, but it is possible that some localized arterial dissecting aneurysms evolve to a localizedAneurysmal sac if they are located between Cl and the base of the skull. Expand

Transient hemilingual paralysis
TLDR
A 50-year-old physician awakened with a vague feeling of “fullness” in the left side of his throat and had difficulty swallowing his breakfast and a complete paralysis of theleft side of the tongue was the only neurologic abnormality found on examination twenty-four hours after the onset of symptoms.

TLDR
Tonga paralysis associated with transient ischemia should localize the lesion to the neck andHypoglossal nerve dysfunction may result from compression or stretching by enlargement of the ipsilateral cervical carotid artery undergoing spontaneous dissection. Expand
