Overview

Bilateral acoustic neuroma was first discovered by Wishart in 1922.[1]

Historical Perspective

In 1922 Wishart first reported bilateral acoustic neuromas. In the late 1800s Cushing and Dandy made major advances in the care of the patient with acoustic neuroma when the disciplines of neurology and surgery joined. In the 1960s William F. House combined the operating microscope and otologic surgical techniques with neurosurgical techniques to revive the translabyrinthine approach and also proposed the middle cranial fossa approach for tumor removal.[1]
