Abstract

We present the case of a 48-year-old woman with a cerebellopontine angle meningioma who presented with sensorineural hearing loss. The lesion was nearly 4 cm in maximum dimension and extended into the internal auditory canal. Hearing loss resulting from cerebellopontine angle tumor is most commonly caused by vestibular schwannomas, which arise directly from the sheath of the vestibular nerve (VIII) in the internal auditory canal. Our case provides a review of magnetic resonance imaging features that aid in differentiation of enhancing cerebellopontine angle masses that can have similar clinical presentations.
