Acoustic neuromas are the most common tumors of the cerebellopontine angle and meningiomas are the second ones. Tumors of the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) have similar clinical manifestations and sometimes the same tomographic presentation, so we need magnetic resonance imaging and histopathological analysis to achieve the final diagnostic. The authors present 3 cases of meningiomas with different clinical presentation and inconclusive computed tomography image. A correct diagnosis should be made and magnetic resonance image is important in preoperative diagnosis and surgical approach.
