Though NF2-associated and sporadic VS share identical histopathologic findings and cytogenetic alterations, NF2-associated VS often appears multilobulated, is(More)

Hearing loss occurs in an unpredictable manner and the underlying mechanisms are not known. To gain insight into the pathophysiologic basis for hearing loss in NF2, we performed a prospective(More)
