Frontal lobe perivascular schwannoma. Case report

J Neurosurg. 1982 Jan;56(1):154-7. doi: 10.3171/jns.1982.56.1.0154.


A 15-year-old youth presented with a history and computerized tomography picture of subarachnoid hemorrhage. Conservative management was undertaken after failure to demonstrate an aneurysm. Reevaluation and operation 15 months later disclosed a firm leathery schwannoma intimately related to the frontal lobe and extending into the cortex in the Virchow-Robin spaces.
