Paralysis of the seventh or lower cranial nerves is the most common neurologic complication of jugular foramen paragangliomas. It results from the local aggressiveness of these highly vascular tumors, which are located in the vicinity of important neurovascular structures. In contrast, the literature has only rarely reported intracranial hypertension (ICH),1 usually in association with massive posterior cranial fossa invasion.
