Name Nerve Sheath Neoplasms
Synonyms Neoplasm, Nerve Sheath | Neoplasms, Nerve Sheath | Nerve Sheath Neoplasm | Nerve Sheath Tumors | Nerve Sheath Tumors, Peripheral | Perineurioma | Perineuriomas | Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumors | Tumors of the Nerve Sheath
Definition Neoplasms which arise from nerve sheaths formed by SCHWANN CELLS in the PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM or by OLIGODENDROCYTES in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, NEUROFIBROMA, and NEURILEMMOMA are relatively common tumors in this category.
