Biologic behavior of glomus temporale tumors in relation to cranial nerve infiltration remains unclear. An analysis of cranial nerve involvement in relation to tumor staging was undertaken in a series of 102 glomus temporale tumors. Frequent neural infiltration was noted to occur in large glomus tumors, and a grading system of infiltration with both pathologic and surgical relevance introduced.
