Endolymphatic sac tumor (ELST) is a rare cystadenomatous neoplasm with a benign histopathological appearance and a locally destructive behavior. ELST can produce clinical manifestations even when it's microscopic in size. The imaging hallmark of ELST is the presence of retrolabyrinthine mass associated with osseous erosion. Treatment of ELST involves local resection of the tumor or radical mastoidectomy, or in combination with radiotherapy.
