Introduction: Intraneural perineurioma is a rare benign tumor composed of perineural cells. It typically affects teenagers and young adults and tends to present as a gradual onset motor predominant neuropathy. Pain and sensory disturbances are uncommon. Methods: We discuss a case of sciatic perineurioma which was diagnosed with the help of multiple diagnostic modalities including electro diagnostic testing, imaging and biopsy. Results: An electro diagnostic study was done which showed chronic… Expand
Insidious Dropped Foot in a Young Adult
TLDR
Intraneural perineurioma should be included in the differential diagnosis of focal neuropathy in a young adult with chronic severe left sciatic neuropathy with on-going denervation and imaging and biopsy. Expand

Intraneural perineurioma of the sciatic nerve in early childhood.
TLDR
The case illustrates that sciatic intraneural perineuriomas do occur in early childhood, and that traction on the sciatic nerve may result in earlier damage to the peroneal nerve than to the tibial nerve, thus mimicking a more peripheral lesion. Expand
Intraneural perineurioma involving the ulnar nerve
TLDR
The current study suggests that Glut1 is a useful marker of intraneural perineurioma, a rare peripheral nerve sheath tumor consisting of intrANEural proliferation of neoplastic perineurial cells. Expand
Intraneural perineurioma affecting multiple nerves: a case report and literature review.
TLDR
A case of intraneural perineurioma affecting multiple nerves, which usually involved one or two of major nerve trunks in one patient, is presented and the clinical presentation, magnetic resonance (MR) neurography characteristics, and pathological characteristics are described. Expand
Intraneural perineurioma of the third cranial nerve: occurrence and identification. Case report.
TLDR
A 27-year-old woman who presented with left third cranial nerve palsy and was found to harbor a mass lesion in the superior orbital fissure and cavernous sinus is described, finding the presence of perineurial tumor cells in a pseudo-onion bulb formation. Expand
Intraneural perineurioma--not restricted to major nerves.
TLDR
The current case represents the first example shown to arise in a small unnamed nerve before the development of clinically detectable nerve dysfunction, and is recommended to prevent proximal extension and possible development of motor or sensory deficits. Expand
Intraneural perineurioma. A clonal neoplasm associated with abnormalities of chromosome 22.
TLDR
Eight clinically and morphologically typical perineuriomas were studied by histologic, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural methods, finding that each of 16 metaphases was abnormal; the tumor cells appeared to be homozygously deficient for the region 22q11. Expand
Sciatic nerve tumor and tumor-like lesions—uncommon pathologies
TLDR
Normal anatomy of the sciatic nerve and MRI findings of the neurocutaneous syndromes such as neurofibromatosis or schwannomatosis are discussed. Expand
Intraneural perineurioma: a systematic review with illustrative cases.
TLDR
Intraneural perineurioma is a neoplastic proliferation of perineurial cells with unique immunohistochemistry and ultrastructural features, and it is distinct from other onion bulb Schwann cell-derived entities. Expand
Diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve lesions in children
TLDR
This review will present several illustrative case studies and demonstrate the utility of neurophysiologic testing, imaging and microsurgical techniques applied to peripheral nerve(s) in children and adolescents with monoparesis and/or identified peripheral nerve lesions. Expand
