MALDONADO, Génessis et al. Schwannoma With A Non-Frequent Location In Pediatric Patient. Case Report. Rev Ecuat Neurol [online]. 2019, vol.28, n.3, pp.101-104. ISSN 2631-2581.

Schwannomas are usually benign, slow-growing tumors, usually found in adults. They are very rare in the pediatric population and their diagnosis requires a high index of clinical suspicion. We present the case of a 9-year-old male patient with a history of an asymptomatic cervical mass, with no other relevant clinical history. Total excision of the mass was possible, and histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of schwannoma. The patient recovered completely, with excellent prognosis. It is necessary to keep in mind schwannomas in the differential diagnosis in cases of cervical masses in pediatric patients.
