Abstract


Cervical schwannoma is an extremely rare tumour. It usually occurs in the third and fourth decades of life. Both sexes are equally affected. Usual presentation is slow growing lateral neck mass. These tumours are almost always benign and surgical removal is the treatment of choice. Here we present a case of cervical Shwannoma in 39 years old Indonesian male. The clinical features, imaging, pathological findings and post operative pictures of cervical shwannoma are discussed.
