Abstract

Meningioma is the second most frequent cerebello-pontine angle tumor, with an incidence of 6.7 to 9.5% (57, 575, 625, 630, 640, 641). Meningiomas of the cerebellopontine angle constitute 5 to 8.4% of all meningiomas and 1 to 1.7% of all intracranial tumors (78, 365, 416, 418). Indeed, most infratentorial meningiomas (42 to 56.6%) originate from the posterior surface of the petrous bone and primarily involve the pontocerebellar cistern (57, 630).
