Schwannoma is designated as a benign nerve sheath tumour which emerges from differentiated Schwann cells. The neoplasm is also nomenclated as neurilemmoma or neurinoma. Schwannoma is a benign tumour which ensues from peripherally located, myelin producing Schwann cells. Although cogitated at various sites throughout the peripheral nervous system, majority (45%) of schwannoma are commonly discerned in the head and neck. Origin of schwannoma is commonly idiopathic although it can be frequently associated with genetic conditions. Schwannoma is an uncommon neoplasm to appear within the upper extremity and constitutes an estimated 0.1% to 0.3% of hand tumours, an emergence indicative of genetic anomalies [1,2].
