Osteomas of the petrous temporal bone are rare and seldom symptomatic. This report describes an osteoma of the internal auditory canal, causing compression of the eighth nerve, leading to auditory and vestibular complaints. The symptoms were abolished by surgical decompression of the internal auditory canal and removal of the osteoma. (Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 1994;120:207-208)
