Journal Articles

  • Rare bilateral lipoma of the internal auditory canals. A case report and review of the literature. The neuroradiology journal A B Göbel, A. B., Kenny, K., Atlas, S. W. 2010; 23 (4): 501-505


    About 10% of all intracranial tumors are localized in the cerebellopontine angle and in the internal auditory canal. Less than 2% of these are lipomas. Furthermore, it can be expected that lipomas in this position with a bilateral localization are exceedingly rare. We describe a 70-year-old-woman with lipomas in both internal auditory canals presented in the literature for the first time and include a detailed literature research.
