The most common cerebellopontine angle tumors are acoustic neurinomas and the second most common are meningiomas. Acoustic neurinomas are about 7 to 10 times more common than meningiomas; then follow gliomas which extend into the cerebellopontine angle, and cerebellopontine angle epidermoids are about half as common as meningiomas.
