Abstract

Nonvestibular head and neck schwannomas occur most commonly in the parapharyngeal space, and presenting signs or symptoms are usually related to mass effect or neural deficit. Complete tumor removal is often achieved, but subtotal or near-total resection may be indicated for patients with extensive skull base, middle ear, or facial nerve involvement. Postoperative morbidity is associated with nerve injury from the surgical approach and/or resection of the involved nerve.
