Perineal schwannoma.


E8 J can chir, Vol. 52, N 1, février 2009 © 2009 Association médicale canadienne S chwannoma is a benign tumour arising from Schwann cells of the peripheral nerve sheath; histologic predominance of degenerative findings is typical of a rare variant, the “ancient” schwannoma. Retroperitoneal pelvic localization of these tumours is quite rare. Even more exceptional is development in the perineal area, which we report here.
