Riddhi Jadeja | Jignal Kumar Sonavale | Utkarsh Patel

Abstract: Schwannomas, also known as neurilemmomas, are benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors. They can originate from any nerve covered with schwann cell sheath. Schwannomas constitute 25 - 45% of tumors of the head and neck. The half of them are found intracranially, within the cochleovestibular nerve (n. VIII) leading to deafness. The slow growth and the lack of characteristic clinical signs influence clinically silent development of the tumor. Presence of the clinical signs may by connecting with the pressure on the surrounding anatomical structures or the damage of the affected nerve. The treatment of the choice of the extra cranialtumors is surgical resection. Here we report case of a 65 year old male patient who presented with unilateral schwannoma of neck. Diagnosis was attained with the help of investigations like MRI neck, FNAC and trucut biopsy. In the presented case, the tumor development was without any signs. The tumor was successfully surgically enucleated.
