FERREIRA, Marcelo P.; FERREIRA, Nelson P.  and  LENHARDT, Rene. Lipoma of the cerebellopontine angle: case reports and literature review. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1994, vol.52, n.1, pp.58-63. ISSN 0004-282X.

Two patients with cerebellopontine angle (CPA) lipoma were studied. They were submitted to surgical treatment. Available literature was reviewed and 29 cases with same lesion were identified which had been treated by surgery. Clinical manifestations, possibility of diagnostic methods, surgical indications and treatment strategies are discussed. Attention is called to the peculiarities of CPA lipomas and the doubtful vality of attempting complete excision in all cases.

Keywords : cerebellopontine angle; lipoma; surgery.
