Abstract

The authors present a very rare localization of an axillary nerve schwannoma, which arose in the quadrilateral space.

  :The patient complained of vague disturbances in the shoulder and the MRI beautifully demonstrates the pathology including the detailed anatomy of the quadrilateral space.

He was operated and the tumour completely removed without consequences.

  :The case deserves mention for its extreme rarity (1 out of more than 700 cases of operated schwannomas) and for the beautiful images we obtained.

Keywords: Axillary Nerve Tumour; Schwannoma; Velpeau Carré; Quadrilateral Space
