Coexisting vestibular schwannoma (VS) with fibrous dysplasia is extremely rare. Here, we represent the case of a 48-year-old female with coexisting VS and fibrous dysplasia of overlying occipital bone. After proper evaluation, the patient underwent surgery and microscopic total excision of the right cerebellopontine angle lesion was achieved. However, during surgery, bone work was extremely tedious and exposure to reach up to lesion was difficult. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of coexisting fibrous dysplasia of overlying bone and VS as histopathological diagnosis.
