Abstract

Ramsay Hunt syndrome or herpes zoster oticus is a viral disease associated with otalgia, vesicular eruption, facial paralysis, hearing disturbance, tinnitus, vertigo and other symptoms. Rarely it can be associated with involvement of IV, V, IX, X, XI, XII cranial nerves, cervical plexus, and diffuse encephalitis. We report a case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome with vocal cord paralysis which developed prior to facial nerve paralysis.
