Nerve sheath tumors are those tumors involving the connective tissue surrounding a peripheral nerve. When they are found, a careful history and family history should be obtained to assess for association with neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) or 2 (NF2) or other genetic disorders. This chapter reviews the genetics, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of the common types of peripheral nerve sheath tumors.
