Four cases of malignant intrathoracic schwannomas are presented: two patients developed the tumor in the posterior mediastinum, the other two intrathoracic tumors were not located in the mediastinum. The paper concerns the problems of classification and histogenesis of these tumors, and their clinical findings. The significance of their association with von Recklinghausen's disease is evaluated.
