The case histories of the articles in this monograph on the acoustic neuroma represent a summary of four years' work. The papers are a distillate of the thoughts and efforts of a team of individuals of various skills and disciplines. Each person has endeavored to summarize the pertinent literature and to present his conclusions drawn from the testing and treatment of the patients who were the basis of this study.

The case histories presented were listed in chronological order according to the date of surgery, from February, 1961, through June, 1964.

In our opinion, these patients represented the full spectrum of the various sizes and types of acoustic neuromas
