Abstract

Schwannomas are encapsulated peripheral nerve sheath tumors. They are rarely seen in the presacral area and are reported mostly in women. Complete resection is mandatory for treatment of schwannoma. After surgical resection recurrence is rare, and the prognosis is usually good. A 34 years old woman with presacral schwannoma who is successfully treated via transabdominal total excision is pre-sented here in this report. No recurrence was seen after six months follow up.
