    Hypoglossal nerve palsy occurred in 2 patients with infected second branchial arch cleft cyst. This very unusual complication of the congenital anomaly has been related to the mechanical compression of the mass. Histologic features of the perineural coat were also suggestive for this etio‐pathogenesis.
