A cochlear schwannoma is a rare tumor that arises from the cochlear nerve. Clinically, a cochlear schwannoma mimics the clinical features of sudden deafness or Meniere's disease. We report a case of cochlear schwannoma that presented with sudden hearing loss, which was diagnosed with gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging and removed using a transotic approach.
