Dr Kumkum Bora, Dr Sushobhan Roy

Abstract :

Schwannomas are solitary, homogenous, mostly benign, encapsulated, slowly progressive tumours that originates from nerve sheath layer of soft tissues, internal organs, glands, cranial nerves or peripheral nerve roots. They are associated with neurofiomatosis type1.9 Many schwannomas are symptomless and discovered incidentally on routine imaging. Non–vestibular extracranial head and neck schwannomas most frequently present parapharyngeal neck mass. In the submandibular region, schwannoma can arise from the hypoglossal nerve, the lingual nerve or the submandibular gland, each one being a rare entity.8 In this study, we feature a case of a 12 year old male presenting with a progressive, painless left submandibular swelling. FNAC came out to be salivary gland neoplasm, ultrasound suggested pleomorphic adenoma. Complete exicision of the mass along with left submandibular glad was performed. HPE reported as schwannoma of submandibular region which was confirmed by Immunohistochemistry. Post operative period was uneventful
