Abstract

Intramuscular schwannomma is unusual and rare cases were reported in the literature in the gluteus maximus muscle. We present a case of an intramuscular schwannoma arising from the gluteus maximus muscle in a sixty-five-year-old woman. An oval in shape and well encapsulated tumor was found embedded with the gluteus maximus muscle, and then the lesion was excised surgically. Two years following excision of the lesion, the patient remained asymptomatic, with no evidence of local recurrence.
