Small Vestibular Schwannoma

Remember my old post about anatomy of the Internal Acoustic Canal (ICA). I mentioned that to me it looks like "Monkey Looking at Cerebellum" in cross section. Mouth of the monkey being Vestibular Nerve and upper eye being 7th nerve (Facial Nerve) (7-UP!) and lower eye being Cochlear Nerve. 

Today I came across this exam showing a Small Vestibular Schwannoma (VS) deep in the Internal Acoustic Canal. 


Note that the VS is located in the "mouth" of the monkey. 

This is a section just next to the VS showing a bit "sad face of the monkey". :(
