Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present 2 rare cases of mixed schwannoma with meningioma. The first case was sporadic, in a 38-year-old female in cervical spine (C2). The second case was a 24-year-old female, associated with NF-2, involving bilateral cerebellopontine angle with extension into the left cavernous sinus, sellar region with erosion of the petrous ridge and multiple intradural extramedullary lesions in the spinal cord suggestive of neurofibromas. To date only 12 cases of such tumors are documented in the literature. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case of sporadic mixed schwannoma with meningioma in cervical spine (C2).
