Abstract A 58-year-old woman, suffering from radicular-like pain in the left arm for 3 years, presented an entirely negative cervical imaging. Careful clinical examination disclosed Tinel's sign in the axilla. This clinical finding led to further investigation of this region. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging disclosed a small tumour highly suggestive of a schwannoma. Surgical exploration and microscopic examination confirmed a diagnosis of schwannoma located on the radial trunk of the left brachial plexus. After tumour excision, the patient had immediate relief of pain without sensitive or motor sequelae. No recurrence has been observed after 3 years.
