Cervical Schwannomas are benign encapsulated tumors of the nerve sheath that correspond to less than 0.1% of head and neck tumors. They usually appear as a laterocervical asymptomatic mass of slow growth. They are tumors whose treatment of choice is surgical excision. It is sometimes difficult to conserve the original nerve.
We present the case of a 23 year old patient with a right lateral mass. TC and MRI showed an image suggestive of Pneumogastric Schwannoma. Complete excision of the lesion was performed. On postoperative follow up patient presented transient dysphonia.
