• We describe a case of a trigeminal neurilemoma in an adolescent girl. It primarily involved the infratemporal space and extended into the middle cranial fossa, and began with only ocular symptoms. The surgical management is emphasized, illustrating the approach to the infratemporal fossa through a wide osteotomy of the coronoid process of the mandible without the need for mandibular split.
