Abstract

Schwannomas of the skull base can pose a surgical challenge due to their anatomical location. To date extensive craniofacial approaches have had to be used to access these lesions. We present a patient where an expanded endoscopic endonasal approach was used to address a large skull base schwannoma with good results. The approach confers significantly less morbidity and a substantially shorter hospital stay.
