Abstract

Schwannoma is a benign nerve sheath tumor that arises from neural crest-derived Schwann cells. They are well-circumscribed and encapsulated tumor, commonly seen over the cervical region that involves the cervical and brachial plexus. However, the existence of this benign tumor in retropharyngeal space is infrequent. We report a case where a patient presented with incidental findings of retropharyngeal schwannoma, who is treated with trans-oral excision with tumor completely excised and patient recovered completely post-operative.
