Histologic examination of a cross section of the affected nerve shows irregularly enlarged, hypercellular nerve fascicle (Figure 7, B) containing spindled perineurial cells arranged in pseudo-onion bulb-like whorls around one or more centrally situated Schwann cell and axons in varying stages of degeneration (Figures 7, C, and 8, A).
It can be external or internal, during which individual nerve fascicles are dissected.
They are often asymptomatic initially, but they may eventually cause pain, weakness, and numbness as they grow because of compression of the underlying nerve fascicles.

Schwannomas grow extrinsic to their parent nerve fascicles, while neurofibromas intertwine within their nerve fascicles of origin.
