‘Tumours of the cranial nerves’ describes diagnosis and management for the most common tumours such as vestibular (acoustic) schwannomas as well as for rare entities such as optic nerve sheath meningioma and esthesioneuroblastoma. It reviews the current data concerning epidemiology and the grading systems according to the World Health Organization classification of central nervous system tumours and describes refined magnetic resonance imaging techniques for differential diagnosis. Special emphasis is placed on the discussion of specific therapeutic modalities such as microsurgery, radiotherapy, as well as stereotactic radiosurgery, either alone or in combination. The focus of the differential therapeutic considerations is to provide personalized approaches in order to attain maximal efficacy with preservation of neurological function.
