A case of acoustic neurinoma presenting with sub-arachnoid hemorrhage is reported.

The patient, a 33-year-old female, had suffered from left hearing disturbance and tinnitus for several years prior to admission. She had sudden onset of severe headache in the left posterior auricular region, nausea and vomiting while watching a play-going.

Immediately she was brought to a neighboring hospital by ambulance. Lumbar puncture demon-strated xanthochromic cerebrospinal fluid with high opening pressure of 380 mmH2O or more and she was diagnosed as having subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).
