Tumours of the Cerebello-Pontine Angle

The commonest tumour of the cerebello-pontine angle is the vestibular schwannoma, or acoustic neuroma. Whilst far less common a meningioma is the second most common lesion identified.

Other less common lesions include facial schwannoma, epidermoids, lipomas, metastases, intrinsic cerebellar lesions such as a astrocytoma, and lesions arsing from adjacent compartments such as jugular paraganglioma or glomus tumour.
