The authors report a case of melanotic schwannoma in a 46-year-old man after 2 years of bilateral sciatica. Surgical removal was incomplete, because of the posterior site of the tumor. The patient was alive and well, 2 years after surgical removal, with some surgical sequelae. The authors stress the diagnostic difficulties of this melanotic and review the previously reported cases in a comparative study.
