Neurinoma, schwannoma, trochlear nerve, cranial nerves
Cranial nerves’ schwannomas most commonly arise from the vestibular nerve. Involvement of other cranial nerves, in absence of neurofibromatosis, is extremely rare. A case of a pathology proven trochlear nerve schwannoma, with internal cystic components, in a patient with isolated right superior oblique muscle palsy, is described. Only 67 cases of such entity have been previously reported in the literature.
