Absent stapedial reflex: Otosclerosis or middle ear tumor?
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  23460218     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
We present an unusual case in which a patient diagnosed as having otosclerosis on the basis of clinical and audiologic findings actually had a middle ear facial nerve schwannoma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case in English literature in which a facial nerve schwannoma presented with conductive deafness of gradual onset and absent stapedial reflex with a normally functioning facial nerve. We also include a review of the literature.
