Intraosseous intraneural perineuriomaPerineurioma (PN) is a peripheral nerve disease that primarily develops in the limbs and trunk. Development in the oral cavity is rare. PN is classified into two types: intraneural perineurioma (INPN) and soft tissue perineurioma (extraneural perineurioma, ENPN). This is the first report on INPN of the inferior alveolar nerve with a chromosome 22 abnormality and BCR-ABL fusion gene expression, simultaneously. In this article, the authors report a patient with INPN in the mandibular body region derived from the perineurium of the inferior alveolar nerve and review the literature to analyze the pathogenesis.

Aims and scope

World Journal of Surgical Oncology publishes articles related to surgical oncology and its allied subjects, such as epidemiology, cancer research, biomarkers, prevention, pathology, radiology, cancer treatment, clinical trials, multimodality treatment and molecular biology. Emphasis is placed on original research articles. The journal also publishes significant clinical case reports, as well as balanced and timely reviews on selected topics.

Oncology is a multidisciplinary super-speciality of which surgical oncology forms an integral component, especially with solid tumors. Surgical oncologists around the world are involved in research extending from detecting the mechanisms underlying the causation of cancer, to its treatment and prevention. The role of a surgical oncologist extends across the whole continuum of care. With continued developments in diagnosis and treatment, the role of a surgical oncologist is ever-changing. Hence, World Journal of Surgical Oncology aims to keep readers abreast with latest developments that will ultimately influence the work of surgical oncologists.
