|Abstract:||Subfrontal schwannomas are rare tumors that are usually diagnosed during surgery. They are often misdiagnosed as meningioma or esthesioneuroblastoma because of their similar clinical and radiological features. We report a case of schwannoma arising from the floor of the anterior cranial fossa that had radiological features similar to that of meningioma. However, T2*-weighted MR imaging revealed multiple foci of Low signal intensities within the tumor related to microbleeds, which suggested a diagnosis of schwannoma that was confirmed by histopathology. This case report demonstrates the usefulness of T2*-weighted sequence in distinguishing meningioma from schwannoma, especially in cases where the tumor has an unusual location.
