Abstract

Nasoethmoid schwannomas with significant intracranial extension are rare tumours that typically present with visual and olfactory deficits. We describe a nasoethmoid schwannoma in a patient who was completely asymptomatic. Despite impressive intracranial involvement, nasoethmoid schwannomas may present asymptomatically and should be considered in the differential of contrast-enhancing anterior skull base lesions.
