Spinal cord schwannoma

Spinal schwannoma originates from the dorsal spinal nerve root. When it grows towards the heart, it can also produce subpial infiltration. Brachial plexus or lumbar plexus neurofibromas can invade and grow into the central dura mater along multiple nerve roots. Paravertebral Schwann cell tumors are usually located outside the dura mater when they expand into the spinal canal. About 2.5% of intradural spinal schwannomas are malignant.
