Abstract
A subfrontal neurilemmoma in a 22-year-old man is reported and the relevant
literature is reviewed. Neurilommoma in the subfrontal location is very rare and
the precise origin of this tumor still remains uncertain in spite of several suggestions
such as the olfactory bulb, the perivascular nerve plexus, the mesodermal pial cell, the
meningeal branch of the trigeminal nerve, and the anterior ethmoidal nerve. In our
case, the olfactory bulb or tract could be excluded as an origin because the tumor was
not attached to those structures and olfactory function was entirely restored after operation.
The meningeal branch of the trigeminal nerve is considered as the origin in our
case.
