July 05, 2018 | Subramaniam Vinayak Easweran, Raghvendra Udupa, Mamata Hegde
Schwannoma is a benign nerve sheath tumor composed of Schwann cells. Schwannoma, which originates from the cervical
vagus nerve, is an extremely rare neoplasm. It mostly presents as a painless, slow growing lateral mass. Complete surgical
resection is the recommended treatment of choice. Male-to-female ratio is 1:1. Fine needle aspiration cytology and imaging
modalities have decreased the problem of misdiagnosis.
