The purpose of this paper is to study acoustic neuroma diagnostic process, describe tumor's molecular basis and its magnetic resonance imaging characterization, which is considered to be the gold standard diagnostic tool to study this disease.

A 60-year-old woman experienced a severe spatial disorientation after sudden interruption of the right vestibulocochlear nerve (on removal of an acustic neurinoma). She saw her husband approaching to her bed upside-down. This "reversal of vision metamorphopsia" resolved after a few hours.

Using the microsurgical technique during the exstripation of the acustic neuroma in the otosurgical as well as neurosurgical approach of the procedure, it was possibel to achieve not only a considerable drop in the mortality rate, but also a preservation of the facial nerve. Our technique of intracranial/intratemporal anastomosis allow in cases with deep defects of the facial nerve in the cerebellopontine angle a relatively reliable rehabilitation of the nerve at the time of a tumor resection. The success is based on the teamwork between ENT- and Neurosurgeons...

This article describes three cases of acustic neurinoma in which both clinical examination and audiovestibular investigations raised strong suspicions of acustic neurinoma but no tumours could be demonstrated by CT. Magnetic resonance scanning employing gadolinium-DTPA revealed small intrameatal acustic neurinomas in all three cases. Attention is drawn to the fact that magnetic resonance scanning provides a new diagnostic possibility for acustic neurinoma and is a valuable supplement to the established diagnostic procedures in suspected acustic neurinoma even although CT reveals normal anatomical conditions in the internal auditory meatus...

In 3 patients with predominant symptoms of communicating hydrocephalus more investigations led to the diagnosis of neurinoma at the cerebellar-pontine angle. Possible causes of CSF circulatory disturbances will be discussed.

In 6 out of 37 patients, examined by pantopaque cisternography the suspect of a acustic neuroma could be strengthened. All of these tumors showed growth beyond the internal auditory meatus. Smaller intrameatal tumors were not found. The indication for cisternography were made almost according to the demands from Fisch and Wegmüller, therefore it is asked, wether it should not be better to follow the methods of Valvassori who sometimes performes cisternography based on audiometric findings alone. As results of our own experience and similar cases reported elsewhere, this seems justified...
