Chest pain accounts for 6% of emergency room presentations (1). Differential diagnosis of chest pain
ranges from benign pain arising from musculoskeletal system to the malignant reasons that may be
fatal unless diagnosed and treated promptly such as myocardial infarction and aortic dissection. It
is difficult to exclude cardiovascular causes of chest pain in the patients with atherosclerotic risk
factors even chest pain is atypical, and coronary angiography may become obligatory to exclude
myocardial ischemia. Herein, we present seven patients, who presented to the cardiology clinic of
our hospital with chest pain, in whom coronary angiography has become obligatory for the exclusion
of myocardial ischemia, and of whom further examinations after exclusion of myocardial
ischemia revealed thoracic schwannoma

Keywords: Schwannoma, coronary artery disease, neurosurgery
