Cerebellopontine Angle Tumor

The CPA is a uniquely identified area in the posterior fossa. Surrounding structures include cranial nerves, arteries, veins, brainstem, and cerebellum.

  • Speech impediment
  • Tremors
  • Vertigo
  • Motor dysfunction in limbs
  • Balance issues
  • Tinnitus (ringning in the ears)
