PMID:  17703816     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Between 25 and 48% of schwannomas have been reported to occur in the head and neck region; the acoustic nerve is involved in most cases. Schwannomas arising in the tonsil are extremely uncommon. We report a case of tonsillar schwannoma in a 23-year-old woman. We also review the literature on this rare entity.
