AbstractHemangioblastomas (HBs) are typically intra-axial, highly vascular tumors of the central nervous system and account for up to 2.5% of all intracranial tumors and up to 12% of posterior fossa neoplasms. Extra-axial HBs are rarely described in the literature. The radiological appearances of cerebellopontine angle (CPA) extra-axial HB can lead to a diagnostic conundrum as they may mimic the appearance of dural metastasis, vestibular schwannoma, or meningioma. Here, we describe a patient who presented with an extra-axial CPA HB and explore the literature of the condition.
