The case of a 55-year-old woman with a middle ear mass is presented.

Twelve cases of intra-foraminal localization of lumbosacral neurinoma are reported including 9 schwannomas, 2 neurifibromas and 1 melanotic schannoma. According to their extension, they are classified in type II strictly intra-foraminal and extra-arachnoïdal: N = 6, type I-II, extending into the subarachnoïdal space; N = 5, type II-III, extending out of the spine. There were 7 men and 5 women with mean age of 49.5 years and a 5.2 years delay before diagnosis. The most common, though not permanent, symptom was radiculalgia; a generally weak sensorimotor deficit was noticed in 4 cases and hypoesthesia in two cases...
