Abstract

Intracranial neoplasms presenting during pregnancy are uncommon. We report the case of a woman with a giant acoustic neuroma, presenting with hyperemesis gravidarum, and detail the surgical excision of the tumour during the third trimester. The case illustrates the unusual presentation and that such surgery can be performed safely without detriment to mother or fetus.
