Benign tumors of the nerve sheath are of 2 types: schwannoma and neurofibroma. Neurofibromas are most commonly found with neurofibromatosis type 1 and characterized by incorporation of the nerve fibers within their matrix. Both benign and malignant tumors can affect the facial nerve. These tumors can be intrinsic or extrinsic; in other words, it can originate from the facial nerve itself or from a contiguous structure or a metastatic disease. Actually, extrinsic tumors are far more common than intrinsic tumors. Intraparotid location of benign tumors of the facial nerve sheath is considered a rare event compared with intratemporal location.
