To the Editor: Of course, Dr. Hawkins is quite correct. Neurilemomas do occur in this region, and
we have five or six such examples among our material here collected over a period of 12 years. We have seen no patient under the age of 30, though there is no reason why a neurilemoma should not occur in a patient as young as in Dr. Hawkins' case. In the present context, sections showed no evidence of neurilemoma. For what it is worth, there was no palisading of nuclei, and any possibly relevant areas did, in fact, stain positively with Van Gieson. Beyond this, I can only say that we did not and would not consider such a diagnosis in our case.
