Abstract

Brachial plexus schwannoma is rare. A case of a 28-year old woman who complained of a palpable mass in the right axilla is presented. She had previous incisional biopsy on the axillary mass. Brachial plexus magnetic resonance imaging revealed a well circumscribed contrast enhancing mass on the right distal cord of the brachial plexus. EMG revealed normal. Tumor resection was performed with the transaxillary approach. Though dense granulation tissue obscured normal brachial plexus nerve anatomy, using the surgical microscope and nerve stimulator, grossly total tumor resection was performed. She is free of any neurologic symptom at three months postoperatively.
