Canalolabyrinthine schwannoma is a rare subtype of neuroma. Only 1 case has been described in the literature. We report the clinical case of a 51-year-old Caucasian female with Meniere’s disease-like symptoms. Magnetic resonance imaging showed right VIII cranial nerve schwannoma that had different characteristics from the classical described types. The peculiar features of our case of intralabyrithine canalolabyrinthine schwannoma directed the surgeon and radiologist to tailored considerations for follow-up and therapy.
