Scope note: Tumores originados de las vainas nerviosas, formados por las CÉLULAS DE SCHWANN en el SISTEMA NERVIOSO PERIFÉRICO y por los OLIGODENDROCITOS en el sistema nervioso central. Los tumores malignos de las vainas de los nervios periféricos, el NEUROFIBROMA, y el NEURILEMMOMA son tumores relativamente frecuentes pertenecientes a esta categoría.

Scope note: Neoplasms which arise from nerve sheaths formed by SCHWANN CELLS in the PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM or by OLIGODENDROCYTES in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, NEUROFIBROMA, and NEURILEMMOMA are relatively common tumors in this category.
