An acoustic neuroma is a benign and slow growing intracranial tumor that originates from cells of the vestibular nerve within the inner ear. Acoustic neuromas are estimated to occur in 10-20 individuals per 1,000,000 in the US. The tumor and subsequent surgery frequently lead to vestibular impairment. The vestibular system functions to coordinate head and eye movement through the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR), maintain postural stability, and provide input for spatial orientation. Common signs and symptoms of vestibular dysfunction include dizziness, headaches, oscillopsia, and disequilibrium. The purpose of this case report is to describe the outpatient PT management of a patient with chronic symptoms of UVH three months after surgical removal of an acoustic neuroma.
