Abstract

Peripheral nerve tumors in the pediatric population are most often schwannomas, neurofibromas or malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs). However, a wide variety of tumors, including reactive, hyperplastic, benign and malignant entities can be seen in children and are explored here. Tumors of the peripheral nerve are generally classified based upon the cell type which they resemble. The genetic association of peripheral nerve tumors with neurofibromatosis and Carney complex is discussed.
