BARBA-RECREO, Paula et al. Intraparotid facial nerve schwannoma: a therapeutic dilemma. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.3, pp.153-157. ISSN 2173-9161.

Intraparotid schwannomas of the facial nerve are uncommon benign tumors that present a challenge in diagnosis and management. An asymptomatic parotid mass is the main clinical presentation, and image studies and fine-needle aspiration biopsy do not usually give a conclusive diagnosis. The main purpose of this study of a case report and a literature review is to provide some surgical guidance for the treatment of this rare pathology.

Keywords : Facial nerve schwannoma; Parotid tumor; Parotidectomy; Facial paralysis.
