    Schwannomas, arising from the nerve sheath, are rare tumors of the orbit. They may present with various clinical presentations depending on localization of tumors in the orbit and the nerve from which they arise. Therefore, they should be considered as differential diagnosis of orbital disease....

    Schwannomas are slowly growing, well capsulated, benign tumors. Involvement of vestibular nerve is most commonly followed by trigeminal nerve. Trigeminal schwannoma is rare entity, and cystic degeneration with intraorbital extension of trigeminal schwannoma is even rarer. These tumors occur in...

    Schwannoma, a benign nerve sheath tumor is relatively rare in occurrence and even rarer in sites, such as jaw bones. There are only 45 reported cases of intraosseous schwannoma of the jaws reported in the literature. We report a rare case of mandibular schwannoma in a 50-year-old Indian male....

    Background: Infraorbital schwannoma is a benign tumor of the peripheral nerve seath composed of Schwann cells. Usually occurs between 20 and 70 years of age, are usually asymptomatic and can cause progressive, painless proptosis during growth. Clinical case: A 32-year-old male admitted to...

    Neurilemmomas are benign and slow growing tumours. Neurilemmomas of the pterygopalatine fossa are rare.

    Benign nerve sheath tumors originating from the sympathetic cervical chain are rare. We present a case of an ancient schwannoma affecting the inferior cervical ganglia, in a 31 year old male, clinically presenting as Horner syndrome.

    Schwannomas of the orbit are very rare benign neoplasms. Intraorbital cystic schwannomas originating from the frontal nerve are even rarer, with only 1 case reported to date. This is most likely due to the fact that, in most cases, the origin of the orbital schwannoma cannot be identified...
