Schwannomas are benign neoplasms arising from the sheath of myelinated nerve fibers and may occur in any part of the body. They mostly occur in the head and neck region, accounting for about 25% to 45% of all cases. The eighth cranial nerve is the most common site of origin. About 4% of all head and neck schwannomas originate in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. The best treatment of schwannomas is surgical excision. Since it is an encapsulated tumor, difficultly is rarely encountered in its complete removal, and recurrence is unlikely. We present a unique and rare case of a 71-year-old man with a recurrent septal mass, finally diagnosed as a schwannoma, with a review of the literature.
