We report a 38 year old male patient who underwent a craniotomy for jugular foramen tumor resection. In the postoperative care unit, the patient developed aspiration accompanied with oxyhemoglobin desaturation. Subsequently, he had several episodes of recurrent aspiration which were attributed to cranial nerves (IX, X) palsy as a complication of the surgery at the jugular foramen. It is suggested that aspiration prophylactic measures should be taken and early assessment of lower cranial nerves function should be done prior to tracheal extubation to decrease post-operative aspiration in patients undergoing base of skull surgery.
