A case of schwannoma of the olfactory nerve with prominent myxoid changes is described in a 36-year-old-man. The lesion appeared as a well- circumscribed mass in the left anterior cranial fossa compressing the overlying brain. It was hypointense with the grey matter on T1-weighted images, slightly hyperintense in PD and markedly hyperintense on T2-weighted images. A homogeneous and intense enhancement was seen following contrast administration. No erosion of bone was evident at CT-scan. Radiologically, the lesion should be distinguished from a meningioma or a low grade glioma.
