Multidisciplinary surgical approach in patient with schwannomatosis in the Clinical Hospital Center Zemun
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Medicine, Clinical Center 'Zemun'
Keywords: Schwannomas; Neurofibromatosis
Schwannomas are benign sheat tumors composed of Schwann cells, which are covering peripheral nervs. Although schwannomas can be found in any localisation, retroperitoneal scheannomas are extremely rare. Multiple schwannomas (neurilemomas) can be part of neurofibromatosis type II, as well as schwannomatosis. Depending on tumor localization, disease symptoms differ. We present a patient with multiple spinal as well as peripheral schwannomas as a part of schwannomatosis. Patient was successfully operated in cooperation between general surgeon and neurosurgeon.
