Abstract

Schwannomas are tumours that originate from Schwann cells. [1] Schwannomas usually arise from sensory nerves, however, motor nerve origin is also reported.[2] They are ordinarily seen in the head , neck and extremities, and are only rarely found in the retro- peritoneum. A retroperitoneal location accounts for 0.3% to 3.2% of all primary schwannomas. [1] Here we report a case of  benign  retroperitoneal schwannoma.
