Abstract: We report a 54-year-old man who developed bilateral bulbar palsy and severe postural hypotension following resection of a fourth ventricle subependymoma. It is proposed that interruption of the function of the nucleus of the tractus solitarius (in which the baroreflex is integrated) may have been responsible for the postural hypotension.
