Endolymphatic sac tumor is a rare papillary neoplasm of the temporal bone which can occur sporadically or in association with von Hippel-Lindau disease. Many cases have been reported in neurosurgical literature wherein surgical excision has proved to be the gold standard of treatment. This article highlights the rarity of the pathology and the role of radiotherapy to the residual lesion after surgery. Benefits of intensity modulated radiotherapy in such irregular-shaped tumor, which is in close vicinity to the critical structures, are also discussed.
