Bottom Line: A 43-year-old woman presented with thigh pain with burning and tingling sensations in the medial aspect of her left thigh.MRI revealed a mass lesion of heterogeneous intensity 5.2 × 5.7 cm in the left vaginal wall.The mass was resected and histology revealed schwannoma.

ABSTRACT
Schwannoma commonly arises from Schwann cells of the neural sheath, and is rare in the groin region. Here, we describe a vaginal schwannoma incidentally detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a patient with thigh pain. A 43-year-old woman presented with thigh pain with burning and tingling sensations in the medial aspect of her left thigh. MRI revealed a mass lesion of heterogeneous intensity 5.2 × 5.7 cm in the left vaginal wall. The mass was resected and histology revealed schwannoma.

Figure 1: Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mass lesion of heterogeneous intensity 5.2×5.7 cm in the left vaginal wall.

Mentions: A 43-year-old Korean woman (gravid 2, para 2) presented to an orthopedist with thigh pain and burning and tingling sensations in the medial aspect of the left thigh. The pain reported to be exacerbated by dorsiflexion of the ankle or prolonged activity. The patient's medical history was otherwise unremarkable, and her physical examination was normal. Ankle and toes had full range of motion and deep tendon reflexes were intact. Straight leg raising test was negative, but caused vague discomfort in the thigh. Plain radiograph AP and lateral views of the left thigh were normal. The patient was referred for MRI of the left thigh and images revealed a mass lesion of heterogeneous intensity 5.2×5.7 cm in the left vaginal wall (Fig. 1). During subsequent physical examination, a cystic, non-tender, swelling was palpated in the left vaginal wall.
