A 57-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of an abnormal shadow on her chest X-ray film and a palpable left neck mass. She had a mild cough. Computed tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the chest demonstrated a well-circumscribed, huge mass (approximately 14 cm in diameter) in the left anterior mediastinum. On June 12th, 2000, the mass was resected. During surgery, the tumor seemed to arise from the left recurrent laryngeal nerve. The pathological examination revealed the tumor as a schwannoma. Recurrent laryngeal nerve schwannoma is extremely rare.
