Primary intratracheal neurilemmoma in a ten-year-old girl: case report
and literature review
AbstractPrimary intratracheal neurilemmoma is rare in children. Here, we
reported a case of tracheal neurilemmoma in a 10-year-old girl. She had
recurrent cough, dyspnea, and tachypnea. Magnetic resonance imaging
revealed a soft-tissue mass was located on the right lateral posterior
wall of the trachea. A multidisciplinary operation was performed.
Immunohistochemical analysis demonstrated a benign neurilemmoma. Her
clinical symptoms and signs improved. We reviewed the clinical features
and surgical procedures of ten children with intratracheal neurilemmoma
reported in literature. Radiographic techniques and bronchoscopy are
helpful for diagnosis of the disease. Long-time follow-up is required.
