Base of Tongue Schwannoma: A Case Report

Dr. Harsh Vijay Singh | Dr. Sarfaraz Shaikh [5]

Abstract: Base of tongue schwannomas are uncommon benign tumours originating from Schwann cells. We report a case of a 22 - year - old female presenting with difficulty in speaking. Imaging revealed a well - defined mass at the base of the tongue, leading to surgical excision. Histopathological analysis confirmed the diagnosis. This case underscores the significance of recognizing schwannomas in the differential diagnosis of base of tongue masses and highlights successful surgical management.

Keywords: Base of tongue schwannoma, benign tumour, difficulty speaking, surgical excision, histopathological diagnosis
