The peripheral neuroepithelioma is a primitive neuroectodermal tumor arising from peripheral nerve. This tumor is exceedingly rare and various authorities have estimated its incidence as less than 1% of all malignant tumors of peripheral nerve. As far as our knowledge is concerned, no report on the peripheral neuroepithelioma has been published in Korea. In June, 1985, we experienced a case of peripheral neuroepithelioma that arose in scalp in a 56 year old female. Clinical data and histopathological findings with light and electron microscope of the case were discussed and a brief review of the literature on this entity was made.
