Objective: to demonstrate the result of successful treatment of a patient with cystic vestibular schwannoma. Currently, there is no single approach to choosing a surgical treatment method of cystic vestibular schwannoma. When choosing tactics, neurosurgeons are guided, as a rule, by the location of the tumor and the thickness of its walls. Emptying the cyst can also lead to a change in the existing relationship of the tumor with neighboring structures, especially with the facial nerve. The chosen method of treatment of this disease in the form of total removal of cystic vestibular schwannoma under the control of neurophysiological monitoring made it possible to achieve early activation of the patient and avoid postoperative complications, preserve the function the facial and trigeminal nerves involved in the tumor capsule.
