Abstract

The authors present 2 cases of a rare association of intracranial tumors of different cell types: neurinoma with epidermoid cyst, and neurinoma with cholesterol granuloma. The presenting symptoms resulted from neurinomas arising from the V and VIII cranial nerves, respectively. The diagnoses were achieved using Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI). The association of these rare lesions is discussed using recent literature pertaining to the coexistence of multiple brain tumors.
