    Introduction: Schwannoma is a peripheral nerve sheath tumour and commonly occurs on the head, neck and trunk. Giant schwannoma is rarely located in the retroperitoneum, the pelvis and rarer in the mesorectum. Case presentation: A 36 year old Asian male patient presented with a lower abdominal...

    Cellular schwannomas are a benign variant of classic schwannomas. Their histologic appearance closely mimics that of malignant peripheral nerve-sheath tumors, which are high-grade sarcomas. In this article, we describe what to our knowledge is the first reported case of a cellular schwannoma of...

    Peripheral nerve sheath tumors are common neoplasms, with classic identifiable features, but on occasion, they are diagnostically challenging. Although well-defined subtypes of peripheral nerve sheath tumors were described early in the history of surgical pathology, controversies regarding the...

    Intracranial malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNST) and intrasellar schwannomas are rare tumors. We describe a case of an intrasellar schwannoma with progression to a MPNST, a finding that, although very rare, extends the differential diagnosis of intrasellar lesions.

    Benign peripheral nerve sheath tumours are relatively common and the three main types are neuroma, neurofibroma, and schwannoma. However, the benign epithelioid variant of soft tissue schwannoma is extremely rare and a careful differential diagnosis must be made with other benign and malignant...

    Patients suffering from neurofibromatosis type 1 and 2 (NF1 and NF2) are the main risk groups to develop peripheral nerve sheath tumours (PNSTs). In the present study, adhesion molecules CD34 and podoplanin were assessed in regard to their value for tumour classification and as indicators for...

    Peripheral nerve sheath tumours (PNST) may be benign or malignant. Benign PNSTs include neurofibroma and schwannoma. Neurogenic tumours share certain characteristic imaging features, suggested by a fusiform-shaped mass with tapered ends, the "split-fat" sign, atrophy of the muscles supplied by...
