Abstract

The acoustic neurinoma is a benign, slowly growing and encapsulated tumor that originates from the Schwann cell (74, 184, 327, 376, 441, 447, 492). The correct designation therefore is “Schwannoma”. However, the term “acoustic neurinoma” is so widely accepted, it will also be used in this book.
