We describe a rare variant of schwannoma characterized by a interconnecting multinodular growth mimicking a plexiform neurofibroma. The schwannoma recurred twice. The second recurrence was not excised and has not increased in size for 1 1/2 years. The patient is alive and well, 3 years and 4 months after the first excision with no clinical evidence of metastasis.
