Dr. Hirdaya Hulas Nag,
Professor, Department of Gastro Surgery, GB Pant Hospital, Delhi, India.
Oesophageal schwannomas are rare benign tumours with very few case reports in the literature. It is very difficult to diagnose these tumours preoperatively and is often confused with other benign tumours like leiomyomas and GIST. Hereby, a case of 42-year-old male is described who presented to us with the complaint of progressive dysphagia for the past two and a half year that posed a challenge regarding preoperative diagnosis. The patient was operated on the lines of oesophageal leiomyoma, later on which histopathology came out to be schwannoma.
