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.

KeywordsOlfactory groove Subfrontal Schwannoma Olfactory dysfunction An erratum to this article can be found at http:-dx.doi.org-10.1007-s10072-011-0707-0.
