Figure 9 (A and B): Bilateral abducens nerve schwannoma in a patient with NF2. Axial B-FFE (A) and T2-weighted (B) images show two well-defined enhancing nodules arising from bilateral abducens nerves in prepontine cistern before the nerves enter the Dorello' s canal. This patient also had bilateral vestibular schwannomas in cerebellopontine cisterns with mass effect over the brainstem. Abducens nerve schwannomas were not biopsied or operated. Surgery has been done for right vestibular schwannoma due to mass effect over the brainstem. Histopathology confirmed schwannoma
