Cellular Schwannoma of Oral Cavity: A Case Report
Neurilemmoma or Schwannoma are typically solitary, slow growing, encapsulated neoplasm that originate in a nerve and are composed of Schwann cells in a collagenous matrix. The frequency of multiplicity is apparently 2 - 6% in the body which has been given the term Schwannomatosis. Unlike classical schwannoma, cellular schwannoma discloses a markedly increase in cellularity, comprising fascicles of spindle cells which can occasionally be associated with herringbone or storiform pattern. We report here a case of intraoral multiple schwannoma of oral cavity showing histopathological findings of cellular schwannoma, in a 38 year old female patient.
