Abstract

In clinical practice, it may be difficult to differentiate brachial plexus schwannoma from pathological lymph nodes. Schwannoma is a relatively rare neoplasm arising from Schwann cells of the peripheral nerve sheath. Although it can occur in any organ, including the extremities, trunk, and head, it rarely presents as an axillary or supraclavicular lesion. In this the article, a 59-year-old male patient with painless swelling in the right supraclavicular fossa and cystic lymphadenopathy reported on USG is presented.
