Schwannoma is very rare in the breast, and most cases are present in breast skin and subcutaneous tissue. Here we present Schwannoma of breast and discuss the differential diagnosis.

Case: A 26-year-old woman had lumpectomy due to a painful mass that had been present in her left breast for 14 years and was diagnosed with Schwannoma.

Conclusion: Schwannoma of breast is a rare lesion that needs to be distinguished from other spindle-cell neoplasms. Anahtar Kelimeler : Schwannoma, Breast, Spindle cell lesions
