Solitary olfactory schwannoma without olfactory dysfunction: a new case report and literature review.

Li YP, Jiang S, Zhou PZ, Ni YB - Neurol. Sci. (2011)

Bottom Line: Schwannomas are rare and seldom extend into the anterior cranial fossa.Herein, we report a case of schwannoma arising from the olfactory groove in a 16-year-old girl who presented with generalized seizures without olfactory dysfunction or other neurologic deficits.The presentation, imaging findings and histogenesis of the tumor are discussed along with a review of the pertinent literature.

ABSTRACT
Schwannomas are rare and seldom extend into the anterior cranial fossa. Herein, we report a case of schwannoma arising from the olfactory groove in a 16-year-old girl who presented with generalized seizures without olfactory dysfunction or other neurologic deficits. Computerized tomography (CT) scan showed a large mass with abundant calcification located in the olfactory groove, which was confirmed as a schwannoma by histology and totally resected via basal subfrontal approach. The presentation, imaging findings and histogenesis of the tumor are discussed along with a review of the pertinent literature.

Mentions: The postoperative course was uneventful. Postoperative imaging confirmed gross-total resection of the tumor (Fig. 3). The patient was discharged 7 days after surgery without new neurologic deficits, and follow-up visits demonstrated normal neurologic function.Fig. 3
