  • Peripheral Nerve Tumors

    Pathophysiology
    Nerve tumors can form in the peripheral nerve network anywhere in the body. These tumors often affect the function of the nerve, causing pain and disability. A large majority of peripheral nerve tumors are benign. Some are caused by neurofibromatosis, or schwannomatosis. Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumors are very aggressive tumors and should be managed by a multi-disciplinary team.
