Unlike the acoustic neuroma, a facial nerve neuroma is an uncommon finding, even in referral clinical centers. Two cases of facial nerve neuromas are presented, with special focus on the importance of adequate radiological imaging techniques and histological characteristics of tumor specimens. Surgical modalities regarding tumor removal as well as facial nerve repair are discussed and the current world literature reviewed.
