Hybrid neurofibroma-schwannoma of the orbit.
PURPOSE: To report a case of an unusual orbital tumor with histologic features of both neurofibroma and schwannoma. METHODS: Clinical and pathological findings are presented in a patient with an orbital tumor. RESULTS: Orbital magnetic resonance imaging in a 51-year-old female revealed a heterogeneously enhancing right orbital mass. An anterior orbitotomy was performed, and pathological evaluation revealed a tumor with discrete areas of both neurofibroma and schwannoma. CONCLUSIONS: Hybrid neurofibroma-schwannomas may arise within the orbit.
