Abstract

Very recently, Requena et al. have demonstrated the detailed clinicopathological features of 9 cases of a benign cutaneous plexiform nerve sheath tumor with hybrid characteristics of perineurioma and cellular neurothekeoma, given the name as a benign cutaneous plexiform hybrid tumor of perineurioma and cellular neurothekeoma, all of which were peculiarly located on the lips. Herein we described the first case of that arising from the nose, but not the lip, representing a histological hybridoma of perineurioma and cellular neurothekeoma after thorough consideration especially with its immunohistochemical profile.
