Schwannoma and neurofibroma are slow growing benign tumors originating from Schwann cells in the nerve sheath of nerves. They are different in morphology and pathology. Neurofibroma forms a swelling in the nerve and is composed of largely Antony B areas whereas schwannomais a well circumscribed, encapsulated tumor and is attached to the nerve root and is composed of Antony A areas.In the current report, the patient is presented with a right sided L5 radicular pain typical of lumbar discopathy. Interestingly, a herniated lumbar disc was noted on lumbosacral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In pre-operative studies, a large pelvic mass was detected and the patient was successfully treated by tumor resection. Uniquely, we found the tumor to be arisen from lumbosacral trunk not from a root or peripheral nerve, entities that have not been reported previously.
