Vagoglossopharyngeal neuralgia

Vagoglossopharyngeal neuralgia is an uncommon presentation of glossopharyngeal neuralgia where the typical symptoms of pain are associated with cardiac symptoms including arrhythmias, asystole, and syncope.

It is believed to be due to complex interconnections between the nervus intermedius, the vagus nerve, and the glossopharyngeal nerve 1.
