Home  List of Disease  Acoustic neuroma

Disease Name:Acoustic neuroma
Acoustic neuroma
Alternate Names:vestibular schwannoma,
Virus Name:No one knows the exact cause or causes of acoustic neuroma. Doctors cannot always explain why one person gets acoustic neuroma and another does not. However, research has shown that people with certain risk factors are more likely than others to develop acoustic neuroma. A risk factor is anything that increases a person's chance of developing a disease.
Treatment:Indicated treatments for acoustic neuroma include surgical removal and radiotherapy. About 25% of all acoustic neuromas are treated with medical management consisting of a periodic monitoring of the patient's neurological status, serial imaging studies, and the use of hearing aids when appropriate.
Description:An acoustic neuroma, also called a vestibular schwannoma, is a benign primary intracranial tumor of the myelin-forming cells of the vestibulocochlear nerve (CN VIII). (Neuroma is derived from Greek, meaning "nerve tumor".) The term "acoustic" is a misnomer, as the tumor rarely arises from the acoustic (or cochlear) division of the vestibulocochlear nerve. The correct medical term is vestibular schwannoma, because it involves the vestibular portion of the 8th cranial nerve and it arises from Schwann cells, which are responsible for the myelin sheath in the peripheral nervous system. Approximately 3,000 cases are diagnosed each year in the United States with a prevalence of about 1 in 100,000 worldwide.
