Genetic Alliance. consumer health - Schwannoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Mandible schwannoma (neurilemmoma) presenting as periapical lesion.
  • Schwannoma is a benign nerve tumour that originates from Schwann cells, which cover peripheral nerves.
  • Intraosseous schwannoma of the jaw is rare.
  • Primary schwannoma of the mandible presenting as a periapical radiolucency on a non-vital endodontically treated tooth has rarely been referred to in the English medical literature.
  • A rare case of intraosseous schwannoma is reported in a 23-year-old woman.
  • Histological and immunohistochemical examination showed that the lesion was a primary intraosseous schwannoma of the mandible.
  • Radiographically, mandibular intraosseous schwannoma is difficult to differentiate from bone tumours such as ameloblastoma, myxoma, fibrous dysplasia, neurofibroma, central giant cell lesion or periapical lesion, so it should be included in the list of possible periapical pathoses.

  • Prkar1a(+/-) mice developed nonpigmented schwannomas and fibro-osseous bone lesions beginning at approximately 6 months of age.
  • Although genotype-specific cardiac and adrenal lesions were not seen, benign and malignant thyroid neoplasias were observed in older mice.
  • These observations confirm the identity of PRKAR1A as a tumor suppressor gene with specific importance to cyclic AMP-responsive tissues and suggest that these mice may be valuable tools not only for understanding endocrine tumorigenesis but also for understanding inherited predispositions for schwannoma formation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging features of three benign cystic lumbosacral schwannomas, which showed multiple fluid-fluid levels, are described.
  • One of the tumours showed bone destruction with fluid-fluid levels that closely mimicked an aneurysmal bone cyst.
  • Though a rare finding, fluid-fluid levels with bone destruction can also be caused by nerve sheath tumours and hence must be included in the list of differential diagnoses of spinal tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intraosseous schwannoma of the frontal bone.
  • Schwannomas or neurilemomas are relatively frequent benign tumors; however, intraosseous schwannomas are rare.
  • The most common site for intraosseous schwannoma is the mandible.
  • The skull vault is a rare site for intraosseous schwannoma, and only 4 cases have been reported previously in the literature.
  • This article presents a case of intraosseous schwannoma in the frontal bone in an 11-year-old boy.
  • Radiologically, intraosseous schwannomas are lytic, sharply demarcated defects that often expand the involved bone.
  • In our patient, typical radiologic and histologic findings including immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy results led to a diagnosis of intraosseous schwannoma.

  • [Title] CT-MR image data fusion for computer assisted navigated neurosurgery of temporal bone tumors.
  • PURPOSE: To demonstrate the value of multi detector computed tomography (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the preoperative work up of temporal bone tumors and to present, especially, CT and MR image fusion for surgical planning and performance in computer assisted navigated neurosurgery of temporal bone tumors.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients with temporal bone tumors underwent MDCT and MRI.
  • MDCT was performed in high-resolution bone window level setting in axial plane.
  • RESULTS: Tumorous lesions of bone and soft tissue were well delineated and characterized by CT and MR images.
  • The images played a crucial role in the differentiation of benign and malignant pathologies, which consisted of 13 benign and 2 malignant tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: CT and MRI are essential in the preoperative work up of temporal bone tumors.
  • CT-MR image data fusion presents an accurate tool for planning the correct surgical procedure and is a benefit for the operational results in computer assisted navigated neurosurgery of temporal bone tumors.

  • CONCLUSION: Among mass lesions inside the temporal bone, benign tumors and cholesteatomas can be differentiated by contrast enhancement in T1-weighted images (T1WI) and by diffusion-weighted images (DWI).
  • OBJECTIVES: To review the imaging characteristics of mass lesions inside the temporal bone and to investigate pertinent imaging modalities for differential diagnosis, which is crucial for appropriate treatment planning.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective case series study of six patients seen between 2002 and 2005 with mass lesions deep inside the temporal bone.
  • RESULTS: One patient had facial schwannoma, two had glomus jugulare tumor, and three had cholesteatoma.
  • MRI study provided us with better clues: contrast enhancement on T1WI was observed only in benign tumors and only cholesteatomas showed high intensity on DWI.

  • [Title] Skull base surgery for removal of temporal bone tumors.
  • OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to review cases that underwent skull base surgery for a variety of tumors that involved the temporal bone.
  • RESULTS: Among the 91 patients, 61 cases had benign disease and 30 had malignancies.
  • A facial nerve schwannoma was the most common benign intratemporal tumor and a squamous cell carcinoma was the most common malignant tumor.
  • With the facial nerve schwannoma, facial nerve paralysis and hearing loss were the most common presenting complaints; otalgia was the most common presenting symptom for temporal bone cancer.
  • Partial temporal bone resection and subtotal temporal bone resections were performed in cases with temporal bone cancer.
  • The disease free 5-year survival of the temporal bone cancers was 42% and for the squamous cell carcinomas, it was 44%.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: Schwannomas are rare benign nerve sheath tumours that account for 1% of orbital tumours and, although sometimes associated with neurofibromatosis, most occur as isolated lesions and arise from branches of the ciliary or trigeminal nerves.
  • METHODS: Two rare cases of Schwannoma arising within the lacrimal gland fossa are presented, these tumours being managed with intact surgical excision.
  • On a presumptive preoperative diagnosis of pleomorphic adenoma, the patient underwent a bone-swinging lateral orbitotomy with intact excision of a moderately-firm, lobulated lesion which proved to be a Schwannoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Two very rare cases of Schwannoma arising within the lacrimal gland fossa are presented, the tumours causing complete atrophy of the normal orbital lobe of the lacrimal gland.

  • Melanotic schwannoma is a rare markedly pigmented peripheral nerve sheath tumor comprising cells with prominent melanization and schwannian features.
  • We present the first 2 reported cases of melanotic schwannoma arising in patients with a history of nevus of Ota, a rare dermal melanosis believed to represent a failure of melanocyte migration to the epidermis during embryogenesis.
  • Case 1 involves a 40-year-old woman with a 1.8-cm, deeply pigmented, trigeminal nerve mass and pigmentation of the maxillary sinus mucosa and bone.
  • Morphological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural features support a diagnosis of melanotic schwannoma.
  • Melanotic schwannoma is most often benign but has been associated with malignant behavior in some cases.

  • [Title] Clinicopathological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural study of 13 cases of melanotic schwannoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Melanotic schwannoma is a rare variant of schwannoma composed of melanin-producing cells with ultrastructural features of schwann cells.
  • The description of the course of the tumors differs somewhat, but it is generally considered as a benign lesion.
  • We investigated the clinicopathologic features, immunophenotypes, and ultrastructural features of 13 patients with nonpsammomatous melanotic schwannoma (NPMS).
  • The tumor sites included the spinal nerve root (5 patients), cranial nerve (1), greater omentum (1), subcutaneous tissue (3), mesentery (1), bone (1) and mediastinum (1).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Histologically, melanotic schwannoma is a rare variant of schwannoma composed of melanin-producing cells with ultrastructural features of schwann cells.
  • Immunohistochemically, combined use of laminin and collagen IV is valuable in distinguishing melanotic schwannoma from malignant melanoma.
  • Further studies including cytogenetic or molecular biology are still required to better delineate melanotic schwannoma from malignant melanoma.

  • [Title] PSMA expression in Schwannoma: a potential clinical mimicker of metastatic prostate carcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVES: Radioimmunoscintigraphy using a radiolabeled antibody against prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is frequently used to detect prostate carcinoma (PCa) recurrence and metastasis to lymph nodes, soft tissues, and bone.
  • PSMA expression has not been described in benign neoplasms.
  • Recently, during evaluation of a prostatic carcinoma patient, we encountered a false positive PSMA radioimmunoscintigraphy scan in a pathologically confirmed Schwannoma (SCH) lesion.
  • CONCLUSION: This is the first report of PSMA expression in a benign neoplasm.
