Collet-Sicard syndrome

Last revised by Rohit Sharma on 6 Mar 2024

Collet-Sicard syndrome, also known as condylar jugular syndrome, is a constellation of cranial nerve palsies due to neoplastic or non-neoplastic lesions at the jugular foramen 1,2.

Causes can be divided into neoplastic and non-neoplastic 3,5.

Frederic Collet first reported the condition in a World War I soldier who presented with a gunshot injury in 1915. Later, new descriptions were added by Jean A Sicard 4.
