Abstract:

Retroperitoneal and posterior thoracic neurogenic tumors are rare tumors and may have different origins: ganglion cell (ganglioneuromas, ganglioneuroblastomas, neuroblastomas), paraganglionic system (paragangliomas, pheochromocytomas) and nerve sheath (schwannomas, neurofibromas, malignant nerve sheath tumors). Nerve sheath tumors are mostly benign tumors. These tumors usually present late and cause symptoms or become palpable once they have reached a significant size. Good quality cross-sectional imaging is necessary to evaluate these types of tumors and the diagnosis may be suggested by the imaging appearance of the lesion, including its location, shape, and internal structure. Distinguish between benign and malignant tumors is difficult to make preoperatively unless distant metastases are present. A core needle biopsy may be helpful but tumor location and its frequently encountered close relations with vascular structures preclude it. Surgery remains the mainstay of curative therapy for these tumors. We present two cases, a retroperitoneal benign schwannoma and a posterior thoracic malignant nerve sheath tumor with retroperitoneal extension, which were successfully resected through an abdominal approach and phrenotomy. Preoperative imaging, surgical approach and intraoperative strategy are emphasized.
