Question
10 out of 18
 

In acoustic neuroma all are seen except:



A Loss of corneal reflex
B Tinnitus

C Facial palsy
D Diplopia

Ans. C Facial palsy

In Acoustic Neuroma

a. Loss of corneal reflex is seen - due to the involvement of Tringeminal nerve

b. Tinnitus - due to pressure on cochlear nerve

c. Large tumors can cause diplopia

"Vestibular schwannomas, although inevitably grossly distort the Vllth nerve, very rarely present as a Vllth nerve palsy. If there is a clinical evidence of a cerebe/lopontine angle lesion and if the Vllth nerve is involved, alternative pathology is more likely':

Hence although Acoustic neuroma may involve the 7 nerve but complete palsy is never seen
