Abstract

We report on 10 patients with surgically proven acoustic neuroma (AN) who have normal hearing, and their clinical features have been investigated. The results obtained in this study were as follows: The clinical features of AN patients with normal hearing involved 1) predominance in younger adults, 2) predominance in small tumors with short duration after onset, 3) subjective hearing loss accompanied with tinnitus was the most common symptom, and 4) vertigo or dizziness without any cochlear symptoms was also a frequently seen symptom. We conclude that in order not to overlook AN among patients with normal hearing, transorbital X-ray and ABR tests should be performed on these patients for the screening purpose.
