Abstract

A report of a case with a vascular malformation of the internal auditory canal (IAC) is presented. A review of the literature of this rather rare lesion is also made in an attempt to outline its clinical features, radiological diagnosis and management. The differential diagnosis and distinction between vascular malformations and other internal auditory canal tumours are discussed.
