The distal end is dilated forming the endolymphatic sac, which protrudes beneath the dura of the posterior surface of the petrous temporal bone near the sigmoid sinus. Earlier than this they were probably misdiagnosed as choroid plexus tumors, adenomas, and adenocarcinomas of posterior fossa or cerebellopontine angle. Most papillary ELSTs are seen only sporadically,but cases with von Hippel-Lindau disease have a higher risk of papillary ELST development than the normal population. Post contrast T1 weighted MRI demonstrates intense enhancement of both the eye and the endolymphatic sac tumor in patient with VHL. On MRI there is usually strong enhancement. Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are rare, papillary adenomatous tumors that arise from the endothelium of the endolymphatic sac. J. Med. T1:may show high-intensity 2. T2:often of heterogeneous signal Early detection of these tumors is critical, because early surgical intervention may prevent further hearing loss. F1: Radiologic characterization of endolymphatic sac tumor. N. Engl. Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are rare tumors arising from the epithelium of the endolymphatic sac and duct that can be either sporadic or associated with von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease. Patel NP(1), Wiggins RH 3rd, Shelton C. Author information: (1)Division of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah 84132, USA. A 44-year-old man presented with an endolymphatic sac tumor (ELST) associated with von Hippel-Lindau disease, which required four surgical procedures within 10 years. (1989) Cancer. 64 (11): 2292-302. A hypervascular tumor involving the endolymphatic sac with destructive changes, it involves the bone and may show reactive new bone formation. This case has a small tumor that is intrinsically T1 and T2 hyperintense. 4. Possible imaging differential considerations include: ADVERTISEMENT: Supporters see fewer/no ads, Please Note: You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. This tumor is generally classified as a papillary adenoma. At CT a destructive process is seen on the dorsal surface of the petrosal part of the temporal bone with punctate calcifications. Lonser RR, Kim HJ, Butman JA et-al. EndoLymphatic Sac Tumor (ELST) ELST is a rare entity. Endolymphatic sac tumours (ELSTs) are very rare, locally invasive tumours of endolymphatic sac. The earlier two surgeries resulted in only partial removal of the tumor because of vigorous intraoperative bleeding. It was first described in 1989 by Dennis K Heffner, an American physician 4. Earlier than this they were probably misdiagnosed as choroid plexus tumours, adenomas, and adenocarcinomas of posterior fossa or cerebellopontine angle. The patient went on to have resection. Endolymphatic sac tumor is an uncommon, locally aggressive tumor. PURPOSE: To evaluate the radiologic appearance of endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs).

Therefore, the lesion is centered in the posterior (retropabyrinthine) petrous bone. Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are rare low-grade papillary epithelial neoplasms (adenocarcinomas) with a slow growth pattern. Neither the symptoms nor a family history of VHL disease were found in the patient. When these tumors are present in the setting of von Hippel-Lindau disease, then 30% of tumors are bilateral 2. 1993 Oct;189(1):199-204. doi: 10.1148/radiology.189.1.8372194. These studies show a mass in retro labyrinthine portion of the right temporal bone, involving part of jugular foramen, that was confirmed as an endolymphatic sac tumor, which occurs in about 16% of patients with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome. Check for errors and try again. von Hippel-Lindau disease: genetic, clinical, and imaging features. Check for errors and try again. This patient also has an MRI study of the abdomen showing another vHL feature: multiple renal cysts. Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are very rare, locally invasive tumors of endolymphatic sac. We will discuss them because their CT appearance is very typical. superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome, posterior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome, lateral semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome, erosion of petrous bone in an infiltrative or "moth-eaten" pattern, central calcific spiculation and posterior rim calcification, center of the lesion will be at the jugular bulb rather than the vestibular aqueduct, expansion of aqueduct, with smooth margins, bone around the aqueduct is not usually aerated. Purpose: Endolymphatic sac tumor (ELST) is a rare, slow-growing, and low-grade malignant tumor arising from the endolymphatic sac in the posterior petrous bone. We report a case of endolymphatic sac tumor in which the patient presented with otalgia and ear discharge. Early detection of these tumours is critical, because early surgical intervention may prevent further hearing loss. The utricle is The tumor is located in the medial and posterior petrosal bone region and may involve the dura. Endolymphatic sac tumor is an uncommon, locally aggressive tumor. 3. Endolymphatic sac tumors are very rare, locally invasive tumors of endolymphatic sac. Heffner DK. The lesion was first described by Hassard et al. 2. T1 C+ (Gd):typically show enhancement in the non-cystic component of the tumor 3. The first reported case of a tumor arising from the endolymphatic sac was discovered during sac decompression for presumed unilateral Ménière's disease in 1984. Here we report a sporadic case of ELST in 31-year-old man. Endolymphatic sac tumors do not metastasize but are highly locally aggressive. There is an association of ELST and von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome with the incidence of ELST, documented by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), of 11% in patients with VHL. 2 It was first described in 1989 by Dennis K Heffner, an American physician 4.
