Ewing’s sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor (ES/PNET) is an unusual malignancy with aggressive behavior. ES/PNET in the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) is extremely uncommon, and we report on a rare case here. A 31-year-old man presented with one month history of left facial palsy, hearing loss, swallowing difficulty, and hoarseness. Magnetic resonance images showed a large mass in the left CPA and a small one in the right cerebellar hemisphere. The patient underwent a surgery for the CPA mass lesion, and the pathology was compatible with ES/PNET. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy were administered. In contrast to the initial radiologic findings resembling vestibular schwannoma or meningioma, ES/PNET had several distinct clinical features. A patient with a CPA mass and presenting unusual clinical features should be suspected of having a rare malignancy.
