Abstract:Hemifacial spasm is not an infrequent presentation and a vascular loop is commonly implicated. Cerebellopontine angle (CPA) lesions are uncommon but can be excluded with appropriate imaging. There have been only around 150 case reports of CPA lipoma; hemifacial spasm has been associated only in eight cases. We present an additional case and discuss the literature and management.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
