ABSTRACT: Schwannomas are benign nerve sheath tumours commonly found in cranial nerves. A case of presacral schwannoma with intraspinal extension in a 10-year old boy with neurofibromatosis type-2, presenting with left sciatic pain and difficulty in walking,is described here. On examination, he had multiple neurofibromas. On screening by MRI, there was associated unilateral vestibular schwannoma and an intrathoracic schwannoma. The intraspinal portion of the presacral schwannoma was removed first followed by complete excision of the presacral portion after 15 days. The histopathological examination showed features of well differentiated synovial sarcoma which was differentiated by immunohistochemical staining with S-100 and cytokeratin which confirmed the diagnosis of schwannoma. The child is well at one year follow up and can walk without difficulty.
