Abstract:Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours may arise from any cranial or somatic nerve. The median survival with best therapy is 49 months. The present case reports a patient with an MPNST that exhibited an unusually indolent behaviour. Besides this, the patient developed a dural metastasis from the lesion and presented with a spontaneous extra-dural haematoma. This has not been reported hitherto in literature.
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 on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
