Abstract

We reported the recovery of sensorineural hearing loss and tinnitus in a 22-year-old man after complete removal of intracranial portion of jugular foramen schwannoma via the retrosigmoid approach. The aim of this case report was to present the excision of a large jugular foramen schwannoma via the retrosigmoid approach and to describe the improvement of sensorineural hearing loss related to arachnoid inflammations due to chronic arachnoiditis after suboccipital craniectomy. The recovery of sensorineural hearing loss and tinnitus after release of arachnoid adhesions may indicate the clinical significance of these adhesions or arachnoiditis, which should also be considered and investigated in the etiology of other neurotological diseases.
