Abstract

Neurogenic tumors of brachial plexus are rare lesions. Recently I experienced a case of Schwannoma arising from the brachial plexus. Thirtyfour-year-old man presented with a slow-growing mass on the left supraclavicular area. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a well demarcated solid mass on posterosuperior aspect of the left subclavian artery. During operation, a well-encapsulated mass was seen beneath the brachial plexus. I performed intracapsular enucleation of the tumor from the nerve in an effort to avoid damaging nerve fibers as much as possible. Post-operative neurological deficit was not found.
