PMID: 32755143.


This is a clinical case of a 48-year-old patient with chronic abdominal pain in association with a mesenteric tumor of neurogenic strain. Intra-abdominal schwannomas are an infrequent entity, characterized by presenting a larval and paucisymptomatic clinic and may even be a casual finding. Malignant degeneration is uncommon. Surgical excision is the gold standard to achieve definitive healing.
