Intralabyrinthine Schwannoma

Sataloff, Robert Thayer M.D., D.M.A.; Roberts, Barbara-Ruth R.N.; Feldman, Marc M.D.

Collapse Box


In the case presented, an intralabyrinthine schwannoma was discovered during translabyrinthine eighth nerve section. Analysis of this case and the 22 previously reported cases of intralabyrinthine schwannoma highlights the difficulty in preoperative diagnosis of this lesion. Concerns are raised about the frequency with which this diagnosis may be missed and its implication in neurotologic surgery for vertigo.
