Malignant Schwannoma

Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumours (MPNSTs), Malignant Schwannoma

More than 1,600 clinical trials are currently accepting participants diagnosed with Malignant Schwannoma.

Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumours (MPNSTs) are a rare category of peripheral nerve sheath tumours that are malignant. Malignant Schwannoma is a type of these tumours. MPNSTs originate in the protective layer (nerve sheath) that covers peripheral nerves, which are responsible for transmitting messages between the brain, spinal cord, and the rest of the body. These tumours can develop anywhere in the body, with the most frequent sites being the legs and the deeper abdominal area (retroperitoneum).
