We present a case of swelling of the eyelid and supraorbital anesthesia caused by an intraorbital tumor. The differential diagnosis based on imaging consisted of aneurysmal bone cyst, schwannoma, neurofibroma, dermoid cyst, and cavernous hemangioma. The surgical and pathological diagnosis was an ancient schwannoma of the orbit, a rare entity.

A schwannoma or neurilemmoma is a benign, isolated, noninvasive, and encapsulated tumor originating from Schwann cells of the peripheral nerve sheath. The incidence of a schwannoma occurring in the fo...
A schwannoma is a benign nerve sheath tumor derived from Schwann cells. They are usually small and solitary tumors more frequently localized in cranial nerves and the spinal cord and rarely in the lim...
Schwannomas are benign encapsulated tumors arising from the sheaths of peripheral nerves. They present as slowly enlarging solitary lumps, which may cause neurological defects. Multiple schwannomas in...
Neurogenic tumors are the most common posterior mediastinal tumors in adults. Schwannomas originating from the recurrent laryngeal nerve are rare. The present study describes a 46-year-old man with a ...

This study will test whether XOPH5 ointment, applied once daily to the lower eyelids for 10 weeks, reduces the prominence of lower eyelid fat in adults with moderate to severe steatoblepha...
Surgical removal of vestibular schwannoma causes acute vestibular symptoms, including postoperative vertigo and oscilopsia due to nystagmus. In general, the dominant symptom postoperativel...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to assess whether the loss of motor response to supraorbital pressure can be an alternative to that of jaw thrust to predict optimal...
A benign SCHWANNOMA of the eighth cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE), mostly arising from the vestibular branch (VESTIBULAR NERVE) during the fifth or sixth decade of life. Clinical manifestations include HEARING LOSS; HEADACHE; VERTIGO; TINNITUS; and FACIAL PAIN. Bilateral acoustic neuromas are associated with NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 2. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p673)
A primary headache disorder that is characterized by severe, strictly unilateral PAIN which is orbital, supraorbital, temporal or in any combination of these sites, lasting 15-180 min. occurring 1 to 8 times a day. The attacks are associated with one or more of the following, all of which are ipsilateral: conjunctival injection, lacrimation, nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, facial SWEATING, eyelid EDEMA, and miosis. (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
A sensory branch of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The ophthalmic nerve carries general afferents from the superficial division of the face including the eyeball, conjunctiva, upper eyelid, upper nose, nasal mucosa, and scalp.
The intermediate sensory division of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The maxillary nerve carries general afferents from the intermediate region of the face including the lower eyelid, nose and upper lip, the maxillary teeth, and parts of the dura.
Virus infection of the Gasserian ganglion and its nerve branches characterized by pain and vesicular eruptions with much swelling. Ocular involvement is usually heralded by a vesicle on the tip of the nose. This area is innervated by the nasociliary nerve.
