Abstract

Schwannoma, also known as neurilemmoma, is a benign soft tissue tumour arising from the schwann cells of the nerve sheath. Schwannomas are usually solitary and encapsulated. Schwannomatosis is a recently recognized third form of neurofibromatosis that causes multiple schwannomas without vestibular tumors diagnostic of neurofibromatosis type 2. The authors are reporting a case of 33 year old male with multiple histologically proven schwannomas without radiological evidence of vestbular tumor and hence the diagnosis of Schwannomatosis.
