Abstract

Intraparenchymal schwannomas of the brain are very rare, accounting for < 1% of intracranial schwannomas. We present a case of an 11-year-old boy with a left frontotemporal lobe schwannoma presented with seizure and neurogenic pulmonary edema. To our knowledge, this is the first case of intracerebral schwannoma with neurogenic pulmonary edema published to date and is the first case of an intracerebral schwannoma operated with fluorescein guidance.
