Multiple schwannomas

Discussion:

This case demonstrates multiple nerve sheath tumors through the chest, abdomen, and pelvis, predominantly within the spinal neural foramina. They are consistent with schwannomas, as it was later revealed a previously known history of neurofibromatosis type II; the patient has also bilateral acoustic schwannoma, one partially resected and histologically confirmed, and multiple intracranial meningiomas.
