We ­report an ­unusual ­case of schwan­noma of the ­base of the ­skull ­involving max­il­lary ­sinus, infra­tem­poral ­fossa, ­nasal ­cavity, nasoph­a­rynx, par­a­pha­ryn­geal ­space ­with intra­cra­nial exten­sion who had pre­sented ­with blind­ness. The ­case was man­aged in Post­grad­uate Insti­tute of Med­ical Edu­ca­tion & ­Research, Chan­di­garh, ­India. The diag­nosis was ­made on the ­basis of CT ­scan and was con­firmed by his­to­path­o­log­ical exam­ina­tion. The ­tumour was ­excised by com­bined ­teams of ­head-­Neck sur­geons and Neu­ro­sur­geons ­making ­Weber Fer­gusson ­with lip split­ting inci­sion and ­left ­frontal cran­i­otomy. ­Total exci­sion of ­tumour by com­bined cra­ni­o­fa­cial ­approach is the treat­ment of ­choice for ­such an exten­sive ­tumour.
