Acoustic neuroma (acoustic schwannoma)
Acoustic neuroma (vestibular, acoustic schwannoma) is a benign tumor that develops from the VIII pair of cranial nerves, lemmocytes of the auditory nerve - auxiliary cells of nerve tissue that form along axons of peripheral nerve fibers. Neurinoma is characterized by slow development, sometimes acquires the properties of a malignant tumor. It is localized in the cerebellar-bridge angle. A neuroma is characterized by a one-sided hearing loss.
Symptoms of acoustic neuroma depend on the size of the tumor and include the following symptoms:
- lesion of the vestibular cochlear nerve is characterized by noise in the ear;
- decreased auditory perception ;
- painful sensations similar to toothache, hypotonia of the masticatory muscles;
- feeling of pressure, congestion in the ear;
- disorder of taste perception, decreased sensitivity of the face, functional disorders organs of vision;
- vestibular disorders.
Asymptomatic, incidentally detected and non-progressive neuromas of the auditory nerve require observation by means of MRI over time. They begin treatment if neuromas of the auditory nerve (vestibular, acoustic schwannomas) begin to enlarge or cause severe symptoms.
Diagnostics of the auditory nerve neuroma
The list of diagnostic examinations is selected by a neurosurgeon or a neurologist. Diagnostic measures begin with the exclusion of pathologies with a similar clinical picture. An examination is carried out, acoustic reflexes are examined during tympanometry, the patient's complaints are revealed, etc.
With neuroma of the auditory nerve, the doctor prescribes audiometry, MRI with contrast. Electroneuromyography may also be prescribed to assess the patency of electrical impulses. After clarification of the final diagnosis, the cost of treatment is determined. The cost of services is influenced by the results of diagnostics, clinical manifestations, and the stage of the disease.
Acoustic neuromas are removed microsurgically or irradiated.
