    Background: Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are rare, slow-growing tumors of the petrous bone. Despite the typical localisation, their radiological diagnosis can be challenging due to the variety of other tumors potentially showing similar features. Case report: We present a 16-year-old child...
