SIMEAO VERSOS, R. et al. Multiple schwannoma of the penis. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.8, pp.824-828. ISSN 0210-4806.

Schwannoma or neurilemmoma designate a tumour that originates in the Schwann cells of peripheral nerves, therefore occurring anywhere in the body. They are very rare in the penis. In the literature are reported twenty seven cases of penile schwannoma. We report a case of multiple schwannoma of the penis and make a brief literature revision about this rare pathology.

Keywords : Schwannoma; Neurilemmoma; Penis; Verocay bodies; S-100 protein.
