Abstract

Magnetic resonance (MR) images of 16 peripheral nerve tumors (14 patients) were correlated with histopathologic appearance. Thirteen patients had surgically proved neurofibromatosis. There were 10 neurofibromas, four schwannomas, and two neurofibrosarcomas. Seven of the 10 neurofibromas showed a target pattern of increased peripheral signal intensity and decreased central signal intensity on T2-weighted images. This pattern appeared to correspond to a distinctive zonal histologic appearance that was found only in the neurofibromas. This pattern was not seen on MR images of the other peripheral tumors.
