Ice cream cone sign (vestibular schwannoma)

Last revised by Dr Tamsir Rongpipi on 04 Jun 2022

The ice cream cone sign refers to the appearance of a medium-sized (1.5 to 3.0 cm) vestibular schwannoma. The intracanalicular component represents the cone and the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) (cisternal) component representing the ice cream ball.
