Abstract

Two patients with vagal schwannoma manifesting as deafness with no lower cranial nerve paresis were treated surgically. A 42-year-old male underwent partial resection of the tumor, which was tightly adhered to the cranial nerves, to prevent lower cranial nerve paresis. A 29-year-old female underwent total removal of the tumor without complications. The patients recovered useful audition with no postoperative deficit.
