Collision Tumour of Cerebellopontine Angle in a Patient without Neurofibromatosis Criteria: Case Report

Abstract

The coexistence of meningioma and schwannoma as two distinct components within the same tumor is extremely rare. They are usually associated with Type 2 Neurofibromatosis (NF-2) but there are some isolated reports of cases without confirmed diagnosis or in association with cancer and/or post irradiation cancer patients. The authors present a case of a collision tumor of the CPA with a presumed diagnosis of NF-2 and a literature review. *Corresponding author: Sérgio Neto, M.D., Division of Neurosurgery, University of Sao Paulo School of Medicine, Dr. Enéas de Carvalho Aguiar Street, 255-5th Floor, Zipcode: 05403-000-São Paulo, Brazil, Tel: +5511974595327; E-mail: sgsnnc@gmail.com Received January 12, 2016; Accepted February 10, 2016; Published February 15, 2016 Citation: Neto S, Casarolli C, Sandon LHD, da Silva VTG, Ureña FM, et al.
