Schwannomas are encapsulated benign tumours arising from nerve sheath cells, of which ancient schwannoma is one of five variants. Since the first description, only a few ancient schwannomas have been reported in different locations in the head and neck region. In the parotid gland, this tumour is very rare. In this report, a 41-year-old female patient with an ancient schwannoma of the parotid gland is presented and the data of this patient compared with other (comparable) cases described in the literature.
