Retroperitoneal schwannoma as a rare cause of abdominal pain in a patient with ulcerative colitis:A case report


Author(s): Mehdi Eshaghzadeh* and Farshad Shouhani

Retroperitoneal schwannomas are extremely rare tumors that originate from Schwann cells around the peripheral nerves. The symptoms are nonspecific and there is no pathognomonic radiologic feature for preoperative diagnosis. Complete resection and histopathologic examination are the gold standard for diagnosis and treatment. Here, we present a 54 years old male with a history of abdominal pain and a 47*33 mm abdominal mass at CT scan that diagnosed as schwannoma after a percutaneous ultrasound-guided biopsy and microscopic examination was performed.
