Abstract

A case report of a 20-year-old female with bilateral acoustic neurofibromatosis (NF-2) and bilateral facial schwannomas is presented. Multiple segmental schwannomas were found with clinically intact tissue between each tumoral enlargement in the right parotid region. Translocation (2;8) (p2.4;q2.1) was detected in this patient, and has not been reported in a schwannoma until now. The patient's family would not allow any major surgery to be performed.
