A rare presentation of eyelid schwannoma in a child
Published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology Case Reports, the authors report a rare case of solitary eyelid schwannoma in a child without clinical manifestation of neurofibromatosis.

A 9-year-old boy presented with an isolated painless mass on the left lower eyelid. The mass had gradually grown for 2 years. He denied a history of trauma or previous eyelid surgery. A clinical examination revealed no clinical features of neurofibromatosis.

The provisional diagnosis at that time was a sebaceous cyst. However, excisional biopsy showed an encapsulated tumor characterized by interlaced spindle-celled fasciculi with focal palisading of nuclei arranging in Antoni A and Antoni B patterns.

The immunocytochemistry was strongly positive for S-100 protein reaction. The diagnosis of schwannoma was made, with no recurrence at.

Learning Points:-
• Schwannoma of the eyelid is extremely rare in children, accounting for less than 0.1% of all eyelid tumors.

• Combined with clinical features, histopathologic and immunohistochemical analyses emphasize the disease entities.

• These findings may extend the knowledge on experiences of schwannoma in children.
