Evaluation of MR cisternography of the cerebellopontine
angle using a balanced fast-field-echo sequence: preliminary findings.
Arteriovenous malformation in the cerebellopontine
angle presenting as trigeminal neuralgia.
Currently, positron emission tomography (PET) examinations with the use of [sup.11]C-acetate are performed mostly in the fields of oncology, urology, and cardiology, with reports of unusual, rare tumor findings such as thymoma or cerebellopontine
angle schwannoma .
The secondary cause is a noticeable lesion that includes trauma (skull base fracture, penetrating injury), postradiation, neoplasm (skull base, cerebellopontine
, brainstem, pharynx, tongue, tonsil, metastatic head, and neck tumors), infection (tonsillitis, pharyngitis, petrositis, arachnoiditis, para pharyngeal abscess, and tuberculosis), surgery (posttonsillectomy, postneck dissection, and postcraniotomy), vascular malformations (arteriovenous malformation, fusiform aneurisms, persistent hypoglossal artery, and dissection of the vertebral artery), demyelination (MS), and Eagle's syndrome as well as others which include direct carotid puncture, choroid plexus overgrowth, and hyperactive dysfunction syndrome.
The patient was given vincristine, doxorubicin, and cyclophosphamide followed by ifosfamide and etoposide plus radiation to the left cerebellopontine
Romaniuk, "Case report: granulocytic sarcoma (chloroma) presenting as a cerebellopontine
angle mass," Clinical Radiology, vol.
Objective: To determine the frequency and clinical presentation of cerebellopontine
(CP) angle tumors in Department of Neurosurgery, Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar.
Similarly, craniofacial pain syndromes, such as trigeminal neuralgia, are successfully treated by moving the pulsating artery that compresses the mandibular nerve in the cerebellopontine
angle with microvascular decompression or, in the absence of an offending artery, performing a blockade of the trigeminal ganglion with balloon compression or glycerol rhizolysis.
(8) While MRI is only indicated for facial nerve lesions of the brainstem, cerebellopontine
angle, and intratemporal locations, EMG may aid in clinical decision making for superficial facial nerve lesions.
