Neurilemmomas or schwannomas are rare tumors that grow from Schwann cells, perineural cells or fibroblasts. Its occurrence in nasal tip is extremely rare. The authors perform a literature review and report two cases of nasal tip neurilemmoma. The first in a 35 year-old female diagnosed and treated by excisional biopsy, via open rhinoplasty. The second in a 62 year old male also diagnosed and treated by excisional biopsy, but via marginal incision.
