Abstract

Intratumoral hemorrhage in vestibular schwannomas is rare.
Symptoms often have an acute onset and include headache, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and depressed consciousness.
Intratumoral hemorrhage is probably caused by vascular fragility associated with tumor characteristics and growth.
With hemorrhage in VS being rare, repeated hemorrhage has only been reported twice, and on clinical grounds only.
The present report details the case of acute neurological deterioration in a patient with repeated intratumoral hemorrhage inside a vestibular schwannoma with computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging confirmation.
To our knowledge, repeated hemorrhage in vestibular schwannoma with radiological confirmation has not been reported before.
