Cervical Vagal Schwannoma: A Diagnostic and Surgical Challenge
Cervical vagal schwannoma is a rare tumor. It presents a great difficulty in diagnosis and surgical treatment. We are presenting a case of 30-year-old female patient referred to us with the left side neck swelling. We investigated the patient and we faced difficulty in diagnosis. We carefully planned the surgical excision of the left side cervical schwannoma and successfully excised the tumor.
