Abstract

In summary, intracranial schwannomas should be considered in the differential diagnosis eventhough they are not in the close proximity of the major cranial nerves. The extra-axial location of this tumour is consistent with the nondevelopmental origin of tumours. The likely origin of this tumour is from meningeal branches or anterior ethmoidal nerve. The rarity of this tumours and its clinical, radiological and pathological aspects justifies its reporting.
