The superficial location of the spinal accessory nerve (SAN) within the posterior cervical triangle makes it susceptible to injury during head and neck procedures. Shoulder dysfunction is a well-recognized surgical complication of damage to the SAN and this functional impairment may be permanent or transient (neuropraxia). The authors report a case of SAN neuropraxia after Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) for dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP).
