4 引文 斯高帕斯(Scopus)


A vestibular schwannoma, often termed an acoustic neuroma, is a type of benign primary intracranial tumor of the myelin‑forming cells of the vestibulocochlear nerve. The typical clinical presentation often includes ipsilateral sensorineural hearing loss/deafness, vertigo and tinnitus. In the present study, the case of a young male patient who presented with recurrent unilateral facial palsy without hearing impairment is presented. The patient was diagnosed with vestibular schwannoma and received steroidal treatment with prednisolone for two weeks. The patient's facial weakness recovered three weeks following treatment, however, the tumor subsequently grew. The patient then underwent Gamma Knife radiosurgery with a margin dose of 13 Gy. Six months after the radiosurgery, the tumor was stable without progression, and the patient's facial nerve function and hearing remained intact.
