Keywords: Acoustic neuroma, Cavernous hemangioma of the internal auditory canal, Internal auditory canal tumors, Translabyrinthine approach, Vertigo,
AbstractCavernous hemangioma is a rare benign tumor of the internal auditory canal (IAC) of which fourteen cases have been reported so far.
Tinnitus and progressive sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) are the chief complaints of the patients. Audiological and radiological planes, CTScan, and magnetic resonance image (MRI) studies are helpful in diagnosis. The only choice of treatment is surgery with elective transmastoid trans¬labyrinthine approach. And if tumor is very large, the method of choice will be retrosigmoid approach.
