A case of intra­pa­ren­chy­mal schwan­no­ma is pre­sent­ed. A 61-year-old woman, with stig­ma­ta of von Recklinghausen’s neu­ro­fib­ro­mat­o­sis (NF-2), pre­sent­ed with a his­to­ry of weak­ness of the right lower limb for 2 ­months. She was inves­ti­gat­ed by MR which ­showed a cir­cu­lar mass with a max­i­mum diam­e­ter of 5 cm in the right parie­to-occip­i­tal lobe. The tumor was ­removed in toto via a left parie­to-occip­i­tal cran­i­ot­o­my. The ­patient was dis­charged two weeks after the oper­a­tion and ­remains well now 2 years later. The clin­i­cal and neu­ro­ra­dio­log­i­cal find­ings of report­ed intra­pa­ren­chy­mal schwan­no­mas, includ­ing the case report­ed here, are dis­cussed.
