Superficial malignant schwannoma on the face: a case for early radical surgery.

Author information

  • 1Department of E.N.T., Charing Cross Hospital, London.


A case of superficial epithelioid schwannoma is presented. The lesion arose as a skin papule in the infra-orbital region and recurring repeatedly over a five-year period, caused significant local morbidity without metastasis. Radical surgery was delayed in the hope of preserving binocular vision. The similarity of this tumour with a rare variant of malignant melanoma, the neurotropic melanoma, is discussed.
