Mazdar A, Asseban M, Aboussalah H, Motia H, Elsayegh H, Iken A, Benslimane L, Nouini Y - Pan Afr Med J (2014)

Bottom Line: Bladder schwannomas are exceedingly rare, benign or malignant, nerve sheath tumors that are most often discovered in patients with a known diagnosis of Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1).A few sporadic case reports of bladder schwannoma have been published in urologic, obstetric/gynecologic, and pathologic journals.To our knowledge, this represents only the sixth case of benign schwannoma of the urinary bladder in a patient without von Recklinghausen disease.

ABSTRACT
Bladder schwannomas are exceedingly rare, benign or malignant, nerve sheath tumors that are most often discovered in patients with a known diagnosis of Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). A few sporadic case reports of bladder schwannoma have been published in urologic, obstetric/gynecologic, and pathologic journals. We report a case of an isolated schwannoma of the urinary bladder. To our knowledge, this represents only the sixth case of benign schwannoma of the urinary bladder in a patient without von Recklinghausen disease.

Mentions: The cystoscopic exploration objectified non- papillary solid tumor of the left bladder trigone and lateral side, both ureteral meatus were free. Biopsies of the lesion were sent to pathology for further evaluation (Figure 2).
