Abstract

Background: Schwannomas develop from schwann cells of peripheral nerve sheaths. Schwannomas are slow-growing lesions. The majority of schwannomas are benign. They are often seen in the head and neck region but they can be encountered in any tissue containing peripheral nerves. Pelvic localication of schwannomas is rare.
