Abstract

There is no preoperative diagnostic modality that can identify facial nerve schwannoma with certainty. Difficulty in locating the facial nerve intraoperatively raises suspicion of a neurogenous tumor of the facial nerve, and this may prevent unnecessary damage to the nerve. Not every facial nerve schwannoma should be resected.
