This 40 year gentlemen presented with gradually deteriorating hearing loss over 1 month in left ear. PURE TONE AUDIOMETRY showed left moderate Sensorineural hearing loss. MRI findings are given below.
|Coronal cuts showing left CPA tumour|
|Axial cuts showing left CPA tumour|
Though such findings are rare and this tumour is rare, It's advisable to get MRI in cases of nerve deafness especially if this is unilateral and patient is young. 12 % of cerebellopontine angle tumour may present as sudden deafness which may respond to steroids. All such cases warrants MRI study.
