Abstract

The authors report an underestimated symptom and sign arising in pineal region tumours: tinnitus and hearing loss. It has been observed in 13 out of 72 pineal region tumours (18%). Three illustrative cases are reported in this paper. The inferior colliculi, the structure more dense in fibres than any other auditory brain stem site and at which majority of the acoustic pathways relay, is closely adjacent to the pineal body. Displacement of this structure may be responsible for acoustic symptoms together with common visual symptoms.
