Thrombosed posterior-inferior cerebellar artery aneurysm: a rare cerebellopontine angle tumour.

Abstract

A case report of a thrombosed posterior-inferior cerebellar artery aneurysm is described. The tumour masqueraded as a vestibular schwannoma on imaging but the presenting features were unusual, the facial pain and weakness predominating despite well preserved hearing. This is an example of a rare cerebellopontine angle tumour and highlights the need for suspicion when lesions present atypically.
