ABSTRACT
Schwannomas are solitary benign tumors originating from the neural sheath of peripheral, cranial or autonomic nerves. While it can be seen anywhere in the body, it is quite unusual to see it in the tonsil. In this case report, a unilateral tonsillar mass causing dysphagia in a 26-year-old female patient was totally excised for diagnosis and schwannoma was diagnosed histopathologically. Total excision is recommended in the treatment of tonsillar schwannomas, and additional treatment is not required.
ÖZET
Schwannomlar perferik, kraniyal veya otonom sinirlerin nöral kılıfından kaynaklanan benign karakterde soliter tümörlerdir. Vücudun her yerinde görülebilirken tonsilde görülmesi oldukça sıradışıdır. Bu olgu sunumunda, 26 yaşındaki kadın olguda, disfajiye neden olan tek taraflı tonsil kitlesi tanısal amaçlı total eksize edilmiş ve histopatolojik olarak schwannom tanısı konulmuştur. Tonsil schwannomlarının tedavisinde total eksizyon önerilmekte, ek tedaviye gerek duyulmamaktadır.
