Abstract

Subfrontal schwannoma not arising from the cranial nerves are rare tumors. A 19-year-old man presented with a large subfrontal extra-axial enhancing mass with a preoperative diagnosis of skull base meningioma. A subtotal resection of the tumor mass was carried out. Microscopic examination revealed it to be a schwannoma. The residual tumor was treated with fractionated three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D CRT). The rationale of treating with radiotherapy in such cases is analyzed.
