The authors report a case of primary tracheal schwannoma (neurilemoma) causing symptoms of airway obstruction in a 9-year-old girl. Computerized tomography scan showed a polypoid intratracheal mass obstructing 73% of the lumen. Partial tracheal resection with primary anastomosis was performed. Histologic analysis showed a benign neurogenic tumor of Schwann cell origin.
