Abstract:Schwannomas are primarily benign. Sacral schwannomas in the retroperitoneum are rare and symptoms are uncharacteristic, often hampering diagnosis. Treatment of choice in symptomatic cases is complete excision while observing asymptomatic patients. We present a case of a 68-year-old male with a large intrasacral tumor extending into the pelvis.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
