Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is a genetic neoplastic disorder that presents with hallmark bilateral vestibular schwannomas and multiple meningiomas. Though the current standard of care for meningiomas includes surgery, the multiplicity of meningiomas in NF2 patients renders complete resection of all developing lesions infeasible. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) may be a viable non-invasive therapeutic alternative to surgery. We describe a particularly challenging case in a 39-year-old male wit...

Concurrent occurrence of brain tumors in the same location is very unusual and has been noted in patients with neurofibromatosis. Two lesions, occurring in close contact but of different histology, are called contiguous tumors. Schwannoma and meningioma are the two common histologies reported to present as contiguous tumor. We present two patients with contiguous tumors in the cerebellopontine angle. The magnetic resonance imaging characteristics in both cases demonstrate important findings that...
