Cranial nerve schwannomas almost always arise from sensory or mixed nerves. Motor cranial nerves, such as the trochlear nerve, are rarely associated with schwannomas.

This study comprises the systematic review of the literature and our experience for surgically treated trochlear nerve schwannomas.
