PMID:  7099413     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The case of a patient harboring a rare intracranial hypoglossal nerve sheath tumor is presented, and the literature concerning this lesion, especially with relation to age and sex patterns and the initial and presenting symptoms and signs, is reviewed. The importance of a thorough radiological examination with detailed vertebral angiography and contrast-enhanced computed tomographic scans of the hypoglossal canal is discussed. Based on our experience with this patient, we recommend total excision of this lesion.
