The Contribution of Otolaryngologists in the Diagnosis of Neuro-Otological Disease: Acoustic Neuromas
An acoustic neuroma (AN) is one of the most important lesions to be constantly kept in mind when diagnosing neuro-otological pathology. In Ménière’s disease, failure to reach a diagnosis at the incipient stage might be attributed to the lack of all the symptomatic requirements of diagnostic criteria. Acoustic neuroma, however, should be diagnosed at all stages. In order to evaluate the neuro-otological methology of otolaryngologists (ORL specialists), an investigation was made as to explore to what degree they contribute to the diagnosis of AN.
