Abstract / Description of output
We report a patient with multiple cranial nerve and lumbar spine nerve root melanotic schwannomas, a rare variant of schwannoma, with raised intracranial pressure. Possible pathophysiology of the raised intracranial pressure by decreased CSF resorption due to blocked spinal lymphatics and other mechanisms is discussed.
