Schwannomas are rare tumours arising from the peripheral nerve sheath. Nearly half of all schwannomas occur in the head and neck region, but the sinonasal tract is rarely involved. We report on an extremely rare case of vidian nerve schwannoma accompanied by mucopyocele with symptoms of oculomotor palsy and CSF leakage. An exclusively endoscopic endonasal approach was performed to excise the tumour and the dural defect was repaired. To our knowledge, this is the first time a vidian nerve schwannoma has been excised in an exclusively endoscopic approach. We first review the literature and then discuss the benefits for patients undergoing this type of operation.
