Lesions of the cerebellopontine angle and internal auditory canal are a frequent finding in neuroradiological examinations and their detection may represent a diagnostic challenge. Among these lesions, vestibular schwannomas and meningiomas are certainly the most frequent and account for up to 90% of all cerebellopontine angle tumours. The remaining ones are a group of lesions arising from the different structures found in these anatomical regions such as haemangiomas, lipomas, lymphomas, facial nerve tumours, and aneurysms. This chapter will introduce this topic focusing on a practical coverage of the typical and atypical neuroradiological signs that will drive towards the most correct differential diagnosis checklist. High-quality neuroradiological images will support the reader for an optimal learning experience.
