Abstract

Abstract
Schwannoma, also referred to as neurilemmoma, is a benign tumor of peripheral nerve arising from Schwann cells
that form the neural sheath. These tumours along with neurofibromas form the two most common primary peripheral
nerve tumours. Solitary lesions can occur sporadically in the general population but multiple neurofibromas are
distinctive feature of neurofibromatosis type 1 and bilateral acoustic schwannomas are a feature of neurofibromatosis
type 2. Schwannoma of ophthalmic interest is rare although it has been reported in relation with the orbit, and less
frequently with the uveal tract and conjunctiva. Isolated eyelid schwannoma is extremely uncommon. We report the
unusual cases in a 12 years old child, who developed eyelid schwannomas.
