Neurilemmomas (neurinoma-schwannoma) are benign, solitary, well-demarcated – usually as a capsule, slowly growing tumors that arise from the proliferation of active peripheral Schwann cells. They make up 5% of benign soft tissue tumors. They are frequently seen between the ages of 20 and 50. Schwannomas or neurilemmomas are the most common benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors. Cases of common peroneal nerve schwannomas are very rare in the literature. They usually have a clinically silent course, though the present case highlights how a common peroneal nerve schwannoma can become symptomatic due to mechanical compression, resulting in pain, swelling or a lump. A thorough examination and prompt investigation helped us make a timely diagnosis and initiate appropriate treatment. Schwannomas should be included in the differential diagnosis of lumps in the vicinity of nerves.
