Abstract

Cervical vagal schwannoma is a rare clinical entity which requires different clinical approach than other neck swellings. Magnetic resonance Imaging is the preferred initial diagnostic test. Complications may arise due to vagal stimulation in unsuspecting open biopsies. Surgical excision with perioperative vagal monitoring is recommended for treatment of vagal schwannomas.
