Diaphragmatic neurilemmomas are rare tumors. We report here such a case and also review five cases from the English-language medical literature. Neurilemmomas of the diaphragm are benign tumors that display slow, progressive growth. They remain encapsulated and do not invade adjacent structures. Surgical resection is both diagnostic and therapeutic. Thoracotomy is the operative approach of choice.
