✓ A case of primary solid squamous cell carcinoma of the right cerebellopontine angle is described, and the literature is reviewed. Thirteen cases selected by strict criteria are analyzed, and the behavior of the lesion is described. This lesion seems to be found predominantly in middle-aged males in the cerebellopontine angle or parapontine region, and grows slowly.
