Schwannoma is a rare tumor that develops from the Schwann cells in the nerve sheath. A 42 years old woman was found incidentally to have a bulky mass in epigastric region. Abdominal ultrasonography CT and MRI have been of aid to know the position and size of the tumor.
A massive capsulated retroperitoneal lesion was identified. It moved forward the hepatoduodenal ligament, inferior vena cava laterally and aorta medially. The mass is exte-riorized and detached from adhesions.
There were no complications after the operation and the patient was discharged on the fourth post-operative day. The microscopically examina-tion showed features suggestive of Cellular Schwannoma. After 8 months during follow-up, the patient did not report any neurological deficit and control CT did not suggest the presence of recurrent disease.
