Intracochlear schwannomas are rare tumours. Diagnosis is based on high-resolution MRI, which should be used for accurate determination of the location of tumours. We report a case of a cochlear schwannoma that presented with profound hearing loss and intractable paroxysmal positional vertigo, which was diagnosed with gadolinium-enhanced MRI and removed using a transcanal minimally-invasive transotic approach.

Abstract

Intracochlear schwannomas are rare tumours. Diagnosis is based on high-resolution MRI, which should be used for accurate determination of the location of tumours. We report a case of a cochlear schwannoma that presented with profound hearing loss and intractable paroxysmal positional vertigo, which was diagnosed with gadolinium-enhanced MRI and removed using a transcanal minimally-invasive transotic approach.
