Endolymphatic sac tumors are very rare, locally invasive tumors of endolymphatic sac. Therefore, the lesion is centred in the posterior (retropabyrinthine) petrous bone. Stereotactic radiation therapy was performed twice. This is a slow-growing tumor that arises from cells lining the endolymphatic sac. Radiology. B. MR scan showed a 5.2 cm × 4.7 cm × 4.2 cm mass which was irregular, heterogeneous, and lobulated and showed hyperintensity on T1-weighted images. Tumors of the endolymphatic sac are locally invasive neoplasms arising in the temporal bone that can cause hearing loss, tinnitus, vertigo, aural fullness, and facial-nerve dysfunction. Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are rare low-grade papillary epithelial neoplasms (adenocarcinomas) with a slow growth pattern. T1:may show high-intensity 2.

However, in ~60% of patients with von Hippel-Lindau disease and vestibulocochlear symptoms, there is no evidence on imaging of an endolymphatic sac tumor 2. 4. superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome, posterior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome, lateral semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome, erosion of petrous bone in an infiltrative or "moth-eaten" pattern, central calcific spiculation and posterior rim calcification, center of the lesion will be at the jugular bulb rather than the vestibular aqueduct, expansion of aqueduct, with smooth margins, bone around the aqueduct is not usually aerated. Check for errors and try again. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice when possible 3. These tumors originate from the endolymphatic sac. 21 (4): 391-4. T2:often of heterogeneous signal A. CT imaging demonstrated an expansile lytic lesion of the mastoid process of the left petrous bone extending to involve both the left medial mastoid as well as the middle ear. Early detection of these tumors is critical, because early surgical intervention may prevent further hearing loss. Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are rare, papillary adenomatous tumors that arise from the endothelium of the endolymphatic sac. Endolymphatic sac tumors typically present with the following symptoms and signs: These tumors are composed of two histological types: Generally, endolymphatic sac tumors always arise within the vestibular aqueduct, involving the endolymphatic sac or duct.

Key words: endolymphatic sac tumor, von Hippel-Lindau disease, surgery, radiation therapy, middle ear tumor Introduction Endolymphatic sac tumor (ELST) is a rare tumor The anatomic complexity of the endolymphatic sac may explain the distinct patterns of extension of these tumors. Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are very rare, locally invasive tumors of endolymphatic sac. Most papillary ELSTs are seen only sporadically,but cases with von Hippel-Lindau disease have a higher risk of papillary ELST development than the normal population. The superficial layer of dura over the distal third of the extraosseous portion of the sac is reflected upward to expose the tubular architecture of the sac. Jump to navigation Jump to search.
