ABSTRACT
Schwannomas of the esophagus are rare peripheral nerve tumors. A 37-year-old woman with dysphagia was found to have an intramural tumor of the upper esophagus. The lesion was revealed on computed tomography. Endoscopic ultrasound biopsy was nondiagnostic. Through right thoracotomy, the mass was enucleated from the wall of the esophagus. Benign schwannoma was diagnosed only after immunological staining examination.

Figure 0004: Immunohistochemical studies revealed S100 protein positivity

Mentions: Histopathological examination of the tumor revealed spindle-shaped cells in a fasciculated and disarrayed architecture and nuclei in a palisading pattern (Fig. 3). Immunohistochemically the tumor was positive for S100p and GFAP, and negative for CD34, CD117, SMA, desmin and H-caldesmon (Fig. 4). The diagnosis was benign schwannoma.
