Abstract

A chest wall schwannoma arises from peripheral nerve sheath Schwann cells of the intercostal nerves. We describe the presentation and imaging findings of a patient who presented with a chest wall swelling. The imaging findings were highly suspicious for a chest wall schwannoma and the histopathology confirmed the diagnosis following surgical excision. Imaging findings are reviewed in detail.
