Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors present a case of Endolymphatic Sac Inflammatory Pseudotumour treated at our institution and reviewed the relevant literature. This is a benign lesion which arises due to chronic inflammation. It has similar clinical and radiological features as endolymphatic sac tumors and is diagnosed through histopathological examination. To date, there have been over 200 case reports of ELSTs but only 2 case reports of endolymphatic sac pseudotumour. This report highlights the clinical presentation, radiological features, histological characteristics, treatment, and clinical outcomes of endolymphatic sac inflammatory pseudotumours and explores their likely etiology and discusses possible treatment options. Endolymphatic sac inflammatory pseudotumour may represent the end of a spectrum of immune-mediated inflammatory disease of the endolymphatic sac. Based on the experience of managing inflammatory pseudo-tumours elsewhere in the body, there may be a role for high dose steroids in its management.
