Abstract

We report the case of a 48-year-old man with schwannoma involving the orbit. Computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 2X3X2cm-sized well-enhanced round lesion which mildly compressed the optic nerve. The patient underwent fronto-orbitotemporal craniotomy, with successful total removal of the tumor. To our knowledge, this is the first report of schwannoma involving the orbit : a review of the literature is also included.
