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.
Neurofibromatosis type 2
- Genetic studies have linked both sporadic and NF2-associated acoustic neuromas to a single gene, the NF2 gene, located on chromosome 22 band q11–13.1.
- 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.
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.
