A case of rare symptomatic cerebellopontine angle lipoma treated by surgical decompression is described. In this 28-year-old male with intermittent facial pain 17 years, a mass was noted in the right cerebellopontine angle on C-T and MRI. Partial removal of the mass was made for decompression of the lesion from the trigeminal nerve root entry zone. The surgical biopsy results was lipoma. This represents, to our knowledge, the first lipoma in the cerebellopontine angle reportes in the Korean literature.
Key Words: Intracranial lipoma; Cerebellopontine angle tumor; Trigeminal neuralgia
