A review of the literature led to 33 jugular foramen neuromas that appeared either as a neurologic 'syndrome of the jugular foramen' like a glomus tumor, or were clinically similar to an acoustic neurinoma. The few posterior fossa tumors involving the eighth nerve or encroaching upon it that have been removed and resulted in cochleovestibular preservation or recovery are reviewed. One case of jugular foramen schwannoma with cochleovestibular preservation after total removal is extensively studied with presentation of the pertinent preoperative and postoperative cochleovestibular tests.
