The term schwannoma(also known as neurilemmoma) refers to a tumor in which the cells are derived from the neurilemma or the nerve sheath, more commonly referred to as the sheath of Schwann. A retroperitoneal location accounts for 0.3-3.2% of all primary schwannomas and 0.3-6.0% of all retroperitoneal tumors. We report the case of a 47-year-old female with a benign retroperitoneal schwannoma as a rare one.
