Schwannomas are slow-growing, well-defined, and pseudo-encapsulated arising from the Schwann cells of the peripheral nerves. Usually, schwannomas are presented intracranially. Intraorbital schwannomas’ incidence is as low as 1-2% of all orbital tumors. Abducens nerve schwannoma in the orbit originating from the terminal branches which supply to the lateral rectus is extremely rare.
A 45-year-old lady presented with painful proptosis of 10 mm with no extraocular muscle movement restriction. She underwent lateral orbitotomy with excision biopsy and was histopathologically diagnosed as schwannoma. On follow-up, she had total recovery of the abducens nerve.
