Abstract

Degenerative schwannomas are rare benign tumors. The patient presented in this case report complained of a dull left upper quadrant pain for several months. A computed tomography scan revealed a low-density lesion at the level of T12. The lesion was laparoscopically resected and pathologic examination revealed a degenerative schwannoma.
