Schwannoma is a mesenchymal tumor that is most often benign, developed exclusively from the cells of the Schwann sheath that surround the nerve fibers of the peripheral nervous system, forming a macroscopically smooth, rounded and encapsulated proliferation. It usually reaches the large nerve trunks, most often affects adults between the ages of 25 and 40, and these are usually solitary lesions. malignant or multiple schwannomas are rare, MRI is the reference test, showing a T2 hyperintense, costovertebral angle mass, enlarged vertebral hole, intracanal hourglass extension, performing a scalloping with thinning of a posterior costal arch. If a CT scan is performed, it shows an oval, homogeneous or heterogeneous mass of tissue with regular contours that can communicate with the spinal canal may erode ribs and adjacent vertebral bodies, enlarge the foramen magnum, and present Cystic or necrotic remodelling. The definitive diagnosis is histological. Treatment consists of complete surgical removal of the tumor with adjuvant chemotherapy (Figure 1). The prognosis of these tumors is variable, and the recurrence rate depends on surgical resection. Follow-up is necessary to detect possible neurofibromatosis .
