A 55-year-old male had suffered from vertigo and left hearing disturbance. C-T scan revealed well demarcated cystic lesion with rim enhancement in cerebellopontine angle. Retromastoid craniectomy was performed. The parasitic cyst and adhered granuation tissues on the surrounding area were removed using surgical microscope.
