Commonly, neoplasms arising within internal acoustic canal are derived from the neuro-epithelium. Lipochoristoma is an exceptional, benign tumefaction emerging from cranial nerve VIII or vestibulocochlear nerve and appears confined to internal acoustic canal or the cerebello-pontine angle. Lipochoristoma is additionally denominated as lipomatous choristoma, lipomatous hamartoma, glioneural hamartoma, ectomesenchymal hamartoma, neuromuscular choristoma, neuromuscular hamartoma or lipoma.
As the neoplasm is posited to arise from mesenchymal derivative of the neural crest, tumefaction was previously and erroneously addressed as lipoma of internal acoustic canal or cerebello-pontine angle. The neoplasm demonstrates typical, diagnostic features upon magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Cogent radiographic assessment of the exceptional neoplasm can be challenging and tumefaction can be misinterpreted as vestibular schwannoma. Appropriate differentiation of neoplasms arising within the internal acoustic canal is crucial as individual, pertinent lesions mandate distinctive and adequate therapy.
