Collet-Sicard syndrome is a constellation of cranial nerve IX, X, XI and XII palsies secondary to either neoplastic or non-neoplastic lesions at jugular foramen. We present here a case of a 71-year-old male who presented with dysphagia, left-sided facial palsy and change in voice and was later diagnosed as Collet Sicard syndrome secondary to the glomus jugulare paraganglioma.
