Orbital intraconal abducens nerve schwannoma: A case report and review of the literature.

Bhaganagare AS, Bidkar VC, Rodrigus E, Naik V, Pai B - Asian J Neurosurg (2015 Jan-Mar)

Bottom Line: Authors report a case of right orbital intraconal abducens nerve schwannoma in a 32-year lady, who presented with a sense of tightness and discomfort in right eye on looking extreme right side since 4 months.The tumor was totally excised with functional preservation of the nerve by superior orbitotomy.The clinical, radiological features and the management are discussed.

Figure 4: (a) Microphotograph showing a circumscribed thinly capsulated spindle cell neoplasm (H and E, ×40). (b) Microphotograph showing cellular Antoni areas with Verocay bodies (H and E, ×100). (c) Microphotograph showing hypocellular Antoni B area with a loose, vacuolated stroma (H and E, ×100). (d) Microphotograph showing nuclear palisading constituting the Verocay bodies (H and E, ×200)

Mentions: The histopathology [Figure 4a–d] revealed a well-circumscribed, thin encapsulated neoplasm composed of predominantly interwoven fascicles of spindle cells with elongated nuclei, eosinophilic cytoplasm, and indistinct cytoplasmic borders (Antoni A pattern). Prominent nuclear palisade is observed which is referred to as Verocay bodies. Furthermore, a focal hypocellular area with a loose, vacuolated stroma was observed (Antoni B pattern). The histological features were diagnostic of schwannoma.
