Lymphoma of the central nervous system is uncommon, accounting for approximately 0.2-2% of all brain tumors. Primary lymphoma of the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) is rare in the central nervous system. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reliably describe the typical features of vestibular schwannomas and meningiomas. In various types of cerebellopontine angle mass lesions lymphoma should be considered one of the differential diagnosis. To our knowledge, there have only been 20 cases reported worldwide so far.
