Schwannoma is a benign, slow-growing encapsulated tumor arising from schwann cells of the nerve sheath and believed to originate from the embryonic neural crest cells. They are common tumors of the head-and-neck region and extremities arising from the nerve sheaths of cranial and spinal nerves. We present two cases of schwannoma occurring at uncommon sites. The first case is a solitary intra-cranial schwannoma presenting in the frontal region which was radiologically diagnosed as meningioma. And, the second case presented as a polypoidal lesion in the right nasal cavity.
