Question
Reportability--Brain and CNS: Are spinal schwannomas and neurofibromas reportable or non-reportable?

Discussion


Answer
The most accurate and most current instruction is to report these spinal tumors when they arise within the spinal dura or spinal nerve roots, or when they are stated to be "intradural" or "of the nerve root." Do not report these tumors when they arise in the peripheral nerves. The peripheral nerves are the portion of nerve extending beyond the spinal dura.
