A 44-year-old male presented with a facial schwannoma extending into both the middle cranial fossa and mastoid processus. Due to hearing loss, facial nerve palsy and inflammatory changes in CT scan, this patient was misdiagnosed as chronic otitis media. Audiogram showed a right mixed hearing loss with 30-40dB air-bone gap. In MR, features of the facial nerve neuroma were found. The patient was qualified for surgery to remove the tumor via middle fossa approach, with possible conversion to the retroauricular approach. Ossiculoplasty LC was performed.
