Trigeminal schwannomas (TSs) are extremely rare tumors in childhood, particularly in the absence of neurofibromatosis. Although multi-staged surgical strategies have been reported in the literature, safe and single stage microsurgical removal is possible. We report a rare case of dumbbell TS, in a 9-year-old girl in whom single stage complete removal was done using fronto-temporo-orbito-zygomatic craniotomy and sub temporal approach.
