According to a study, perineurioma can be divided into 2 forms: intraneural and extraneural (soft tissue) perineurioma. The tumor cells in perineurioma are characterized by their specific immunohistochemical and ultrastructural features. According to the location, to date, approximately 120 cases with intraneural perineurioma have been published. However, the anesthetic management for a parturient with intraneural perineurioma has not been reported. As the spinal roots and nerves of extremities are involved, neuraxial anesthesia should be theoretically avoided. Therefore, general anesthesia may be a safer option.
