We report a rare case of a postoperative bilateral laryngeal and pharyngeal lesion of the extracranial vagal
nerve following a routine general anaesthesia in prone position. It documents a possible way of a serious complication depending
to the positioning of the patient in prone position. Etiological factors and measures to avoid this rare but critical
complication are discussed.
For the clinical practise it should give an advice to minimize the risk of injuries by malpositioning.
