Abstract

A case history of a trauma patient who developed a palsy of the marginal mandibular nerve from compression by a cervical spine hard collar is presented. After clinical and radiographic screening found no evidence of occult cervical spine pathology, the collar was removed; the palsy resolved uneventfully during the next 2 days.
