Schwannoma are benign, solitary and encapsulated tumors originating from the Schwann cells of the nerve sheath. About 25% to 40% of all schwannomas are found in the head and neck and the acoustic nerve is most frequently involved, but schwannomas of the tongue is rare. When they do occur, treatment is simple. However, diagnosis is invariably delayed because of the vagueness of symptoms. Recently, authors experienced a case of schwannoma occurred in the base of tongue and the tumor was successfully removed through intraoral approach. So we report this case with literature review.
