VP may manifest when arteries in the cerebellar pontine angle cause a segmental, pressure-induced dysfunction of the eighth nerve [1]. The symptoms are usually triggered by direct pulsatile compression with ephaptic discharges, less often by conduction blocks [2]. A loop of the anterior inferior cerebellar artery seems to be most often involved, less so the posterior inferior cerebellar artery, the vertebral artery, or a vein [3]. Surgical microvascular decompression of the eighth nerve is the "ultima ratio" for medically intractable cases or in exceptional cases of non-vascular compression of the eighth nerve by a Tumor or Cyst [4]. The finding of parental consanguinity supports Autosomal recessive Inheritance [5].
