A schwannoma is a benign tumor that originates from the peripheral nerve sheath. Schwannomas occur most commonly in the head and neck region involving the brachial plexus and the spinal nerves. The lower limbs are less commonly affected. This paper presents a case of a patient with a schwannoma showing atypical localization at the digital nerve of the foot causing neurological symptoms.
