Neurilemmoma has been defined as a benign, encapsulated neoplasm that arises in the nerve fiber. It originates from the proliferation of Schwann cells in the perineurium causing displacement and compression of the adjacent nerve. This neoplasm is composed primarily of Schwann cells in a poorly collagenized stroma. Read More

Case report of portal hepatic schwannoma: presentation of multimodality images.

BMC Gastroenterol 2021 Apr 20;21(1):183. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Radiology, Nihon University School of Medicine, Tokyo, 173-8610, Japan.

Int J Hyperthermia 2021 ;38(1):552-560

Department of Veterinary Pathobiology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK, USA.

Oral cancers are one of the commonly diagnosed tumors worldwide in human and veterinary patients. Most oral cancers are surgically resected; however, obtaining an adequate margin of safety in patients without compromising their quality of life is often challenging. Herein, we investigated the ability of non-invasive focused ultrasound (FUS) to thermally ablate a biopsy confirmed canine oral cancer. Read More

Retropharyngeal chordoma extending to the spinal cord, mimicking a neurogenic tumor: a case report and literature review.

J Int Med Res 2021 Mar;49(3):300060521999566

Department of Pathology, Inje University School of Medicine, Busan Paik Hospital, Busan, Republic of Korea.

Chordomas are rare, locally aggressive bone malignancies with poor prognoses. However, those with minimal or no bone involvement are more easily resectable because of their well-delineated margins and thus have better prognoses. Such extraosseous chordomas of the spine are localized both intradurally and extradurally. Read More

Atypical, Extremely Rapid Growth of Pediatric Orbital Neurilemmoma.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 Mar 8. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Adnexal Service, Moorfields Eye Hospital Department of Eye Pathology, UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, London, United Kingdom.

Solitary orbital neurilemmoma-a benign tumor of Schwann cells in a peripheral nerve-sheath-are typically very slow growing and present in middle age; in the absence of neurofibromatosis, they are almost never seen in childhood. We describe the clinical presentation, imaging, pathology, and management of this tumor in a 12 years old-the tumor growing extremely rapidly over 5 months and without any evidence of cystic degeneration, hemorrhage, or sarcomatous features. The possibility of tumor growth having been accelerated by prior biopsy is discussed. Read More

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Chonnam National University Medical School, Gwangju, Korea.

Schwannoma, also known as neurilemmoma, is a tumor of the nerve sheath, which most often occurs in the peripheral nerves of the extremities. Schwannoma can be accompanied by symptoms such as pain, paresthesia, and Tinel sign; however, patients can also be asymptomatic. Here, we present the case of a 17-year-old woman who presented with a slowly growing, asymptomatic, postauricular mass that appeared 10 years prior. Read More

Solitary Neurofibroma of the Hard Palate: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Am J Case Rep 2021 Feb 22;22:e929674. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Dental and Oral Medical Center, Kurume University School of Medicine, Kurume, Fukuoka, Japan.

BACKGROUND Neurofibromas are benign tumors of neurological origin caused by the proliferation of Schwann cells and fibroblasts; they often occur in the skin and nerves as a symptom of von Recklinghausen disease. Solitary neurofibromas are also known to occur on their own, but solitary development in the hard palate is extremely rare and difficult to distinguish from schwannomas. The neural origin of solitary neurofibromas is also difficult to determine intraoperatively, and there have been no reports that clearly identify the neural origin of neurofibromas in the hard palate.

Diagnostic Pathology of Tumors of Peripheral Nerve.

Neurosurgery 2021 02;88(3):443-456

Department of Pathology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Neoplasms of the peripheral nervous system represent a heterogenous group with a wide spectrum of morphological features and biological potential. They range from benign and curable by complete excision (schwannoma and soft tissue perineurioma) to benign but potentially aggressive at the local level (plexiform neurofibroma) to the highly malignant (malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors [MPNST]). In this review, we discuss the diagnostic and pathologic features of common peripheral nerve sheath tumors, particularly those that may be encountered in the intracranial compartment or in the spine and paraspinal region.
