Overview

Numerous studies show the correlation between Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) and acoustic neuroma. Other causes can include exposure to occupational noise and cellular telephone use. 

Causes

Neurofibromatosis type 2

Childhood Radiation

  • Exposure to radiation in childhood can lead to the development of acoustic neuroma.
  • Acoustic neuroma, in this case, can occur after a long latency period.[3]

Other Causes

Cellular Telephone Use

  • It is suspected that the long term use of cellular phones can also lead to the development of acoustic neuroma but this suspicion is not backed by any significant data.

Occupational noise exposure

  • A small number of epidemiologic studies of occupational noise exposure, based on self-report, have suggested an association with acoustic neuroma.[4]
