N2 - Intraneural perineurioma is an uncommon benign neoplasm characterized by focal perineural cell proliferation. The typical course is indolent, with gradual onset and slow progression of motor loss.

In the present case, clinical presentation, electrophysiologic findings, and magnetic resonance imaging findings in a child were compatible with intraneural perineurioma of the lumbosacral trunk and sciatic nerve.
