Schwannoma is a benign tumor arising from peripheral nerve sheath cells. It is rare to find them outside head, neck and extremities. We report a rare case of an incidentally detected large retroperitoneal mass in a 62-yearold male by radiological investigation, who underwent fine needle aspiration cytology which was insignificant and proceed for excision, which was found to be schwannoma on histopathological examination.
