Abstract

Acase of trigeminal neuralgia caused by a contralateral acoustic neurinoma is presented. After removal of the tumor, the neuralgic pain has completely disappeared. The pathophysiology of this entity is briefly reviewed. The neuralgic pain may be caused by the compression of the contralateral trigeminal nerve by the mass effect in this case.
