ABSTRACT
Acute labyrinthitis is clinically characterized by cochlear symptom like sudden hearing loss, tinnitus and aural fullness and vestibular symptom like vertigo and spontaneous nystagmus. Several disease entities may mimic labyrinthitis when the disease does not manifest its own characteristic findings. We present the case of a 43-year-old female patient who was suffering from the acute vertigo and sudden hearing loss in her right ear. The speech discrimination score in right side was 24% and brain magnetic resonance imagine revealed a mass in internal auditory canal and minimally extending cerebellopontine angle. Removal of mass was performed via translabyrinthine approach and rapid vestibular compensation was accomplished after surgery.
