Abstract

VESTIBULAR SCHWANOMA PRESENTING AS HEADACHE

Dr. M. K. Rajasekar, Dr. Nithya and Dr. Mahesh Madhu

ABSTRACT

Vestibularschwannoma, is a tumor of the Schwann cells which involves the vestibular division of the VII cranial nerve. Most commonly the patients present withorofacial pain, facial paralysis, trigeminal neuralgia, tinnitus, hearing loss, and imbalance that result from compression of cranial nerves V–IX. In some patients, acoustic neuromas may grow large enough, preventing the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid by pressing against the brainstem, leading to a phenomenon called hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus, causes pressure on the tissues of brain and results in a variety of symptoms including headaches, an impaired ability to coordinate voluntary movements (ataxia), and mental confusion. Headaches may also occur in the absence of hydrocephalus and in some rare cases may be the first sign of an acoustic neuroma. We report a interesting case of acoustic neuroma presented as unilateral headache for a short duration of 2 months.

Keywords: Vestibularschwannoma, is a tumor withorofacial of 2 months.
