ABSTRACT

"Acoustic Neuroma" is an outdated phrase that has been replaced by "vestibular schwannoma". "Among their findings, the panel concluded that (1) the term vestibular schwannoma is preferred over acoustic neuroma as these tumors are composed of Schwann cells and typically involve the vestibular rather than the acoustic division of the 8th cranial nerve;" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=pubmed&cmd=Retrieve&dopt=AbstractPlus&list_uids=1840823&query_hl=2&itool=pubmed_docsum

No MeSH data available.


There is a soft-tissue mass extending out of the right IAC and into the cerebello-pontine angle (CPA) cistern.  These lesions are Schwann cell neoplasms, most often arising from the inferior division of the vestibular nerve.
