Abstract Vascular tumors pose a challenging problem in treatment, as surgical planning can be extensive. Often times, pre-operative embolization is required to minimize blood loss during surgery. With the advent of new biochemical compounds, embolization modalities have evolved over the past decade. Although rare, side effects and complications of embolic materials have been cited sporadically in the literature. We present an interesting case of a patient afflicted with facial paralysis and other cranial neuropathies following embolization of a paraganglioma, along with the appropriate imaging that confirms the etiology of her paralysis.
