THIS section presents in table form our series of 200 patients having unilateral acoustic tumors. (Case numbers 50-54 are listed out of numerical order intentionally. The order in which they stand is the proper chronological sequence in which the patients were seen by us.)

In addition to these cases, we have had eight patients with bilateral acoustic tumors, and four patients with neurofibromata whose cases are discussed in the article on Bilateral Tumors in this monograph.

We have also had 32 patients with various other types of cerebellopontine angle tumors, whose cases are discussed in the article on Other Tumors in this monograph.

One other patient with a large recurrent tumor was referred to us in a far advanced state for secondary removal and subsequently died. His case is not reviewed in this series.

In the accompanying table of 200 cases, various symbols are used. Most of these are self-explanatory.
