Abstract

Schwannomas of peripheral branches of the trigeminal nerve are rare. We report a 23-year-old Chinese man who underwent anterior orbitotomy through an upper eyelid crease incision approach for resection of a supraorbital nerve schwannoma. Clinical features, imaging findings, and management considerations are discussed, and the literature reviewed.
