(a) Tumor is composed of spindle cells arranged in Antoni A and Antoni B pattern (H and E, ×40). (b) with Verocay bodies (*) (H and E, ×100). (c) sheets of foamy macrophages admixed with lymphocytes (H and E, ×400) and (d) cholesterol clefts (H and E, ×400)

Figure 2: (a) Tumor is composed of spindle cells arranged in Antoni A and Antoni B pattern (H and E, ×40). (b) with Verocay bodies (*) (H and E, ×100). (c) sheets of foamy macrophages admixed with lymphocytes (H and E, ×400) and (d) cholesterol clefts (H and E, ×400)

Mentions: There were no post-operative complications and patient was discharged on 10th post-operative day. Histopathological examination revealed a benign schwannoma [Figure 2] with degenerative changes such as foamy macrophages [Figure 2c] and cholesterol clefts [Figure 2d] and characteristic Verocay bodies [Figure 2b]. Multiple sections did not reveal any seminal vesicle tissue within the tumor, suggesting that the tumor had completely effaced the organ. Patient was voiding well without incontinence and his erectile and ejaculatory functions are preserved. There has been no recurrence of tumor until date, that is, 2 years and 10 months after surgery.
