Abstract

Ancient neurilemmoma (schwannoma) is a rare variant of the neurilemmoma. It is a slow‐growing, benign neoplasm with a favorable clinical course. Histologically, it can be confused with a sarcoma. A case of an ancient neurilemmoma of the infratemporal fossa is reported. The clinical, histologic, radiologic, and surgical aspects of this tumor are discussed with an emphasis on diagnosis and treatment.
