Schwannomas are benign or malignant tumors that arise from Schwann cells in the myelin sheath of peripheral, autonomic or cranial nerves. Among the latter, involvement of the trigeminal nerve is usually the second in frequency. We report the case of a 33 year old patient presenting with a left trigeminal neuralgia of 4 month of evolution. The imaging study showed a tumor of the left infraorbital nerve. The lesion was excised, and the histological study revealed a benign Schwannoma of the infraorbital nerve. To our knowledge, this is the first report of this nerve being affected

Palabras clave : Schwannoma; trigeminal Schwannoma; neurinoma.
