Surgical management of large glomus jugulare tumours: infra- and trans-temporal approach.

Surgery may have to be considered in the management of large glomus tumours since other modalities of treatment are not curative. The judicious use of surgical intervention is imperative since a neurological deficit involving the last four cranial nerves may ensue and consideration of the quality of life of the patient in the post-operative period is of paramount importance. A brief description of the historical aspects and pathology of these tumours is followed by an analysis of the clinical presentation, investigation and assessment of a series of 10 patients. Six patients underwent surgery and their tumours were removed by the infra- and trans-temporal approach. This is described and illustrated in detail and the surgical results presented.
