Abstract

Prospective Study of Glomus Jugulare and Tympanicum Tumors: Clinical Findings, Surgical Approach and Outcomes, Short-Term Follow-Up: A Clinical Perspective

We report a case of a facial canal paragangliomas with extension into the internal auditory canal. This report describes for the first time this avenue of extension of facial canal paragangliomas.
